    No, many of her family members had to find out via news/social media sites. We wish we could have been notified first, too. Very few hours is not enough time. Shame on you 5 news.

      This makes me sad to learn the family learned through this website. My nephew was killed in a horrible accident last April, and this website released reports before all of our family was notified, then did an interview with a lady who lied about the whole thing. It was terrible for us. I’ll be praying for your family.

    What a terrible, terrible loss. My sincere condolences to family, friends and associates. RIP.

    My condolences to the family, and my apologies to the family members that found out via social media. However, the article was posted 5 hours after the accident was reported. I am sure the police notified the immediate family before releasing the details to the media. That is all the police are required to notify. If the spouse/child(ren) did not notify extended family before the media released it, then it is not the media’s fault. I can imagine the pain that those family members are feeling, as I would not want to find out this way. However, I’ve had my own family not notify me about a death in the family until the day of/before the viewing at the funeral home.
    Again, my deepest condolences and apologies on your loss.

    It is very frustrating that they released this before most of the family was notified. It is also frustrating that they used a picture that was not of her, or looked anything like her on the news tonight.

      The tribute story was nice, but accuracy would have been appreciated. You showed a picture of her that wasn’t her. :(

  • Leslie Ballmann former student parent

    My deepest sympathies to her family, extended family, students and former students. I know that they are all in deep mourning as she was a wonderful person and a great role model to all of her students. My daughter and niece were former students and I know that I seen lots of tears in my house last evening.

    This is such a loss for a family, a school, and a community. I taught Medical Professions classes at Rogers and knew Angie through her involvement with HOSA. She gave 100% to her students and it was apparent in their admiration for her. She has influenced so many students in NWA to go into Healthcare fields. They will be her legacy. For her family, I am so sorry for you loss. Heaven has truly gained an angel.

    Was she not wearing a seat belt? This article doesn’t give much info on the accident itself? When they broke this story yesterday they said it was a head on crash, but there’s no mention of that here? It’s hard to get the facts these days from these news outlets. Just get the story out fast before their competitors do. So it takes a few days for the facts to get out.
