Services for Tracy Hudson, a former Garden Grove High School badminton star who was killed in a single-car accident early Sunday morning, will be held tonight at Glendale, Ariz.
Hudson, 18, a freshman at Arizona State University, was killed at 1:30 a.m. Sunday when the Datsun 280 Z she was driving alone veered off an interstate highway outside Tempe, Ariz.
According to a highway patrol report, Hudson's car struck a metal highway reflector pole that penetrated the car's floorboard and struck Hudson in the right foot. The report states that she lost control of the car, which rolled onto its roof.
Hudson was taken to St. Luke's Hospital in Tempe and transported by helicopter to St. Joseph's in Phoenix, where she died of "multiple trauma," according to a highway patrol spokesperson. The accident is still under investigation.
