Friends Remember UAFS Student Killed In Thanksgiving Day Car Crash

FORT SMITH (KFSM) -- A car wreck Thanksgiving Day took the life of a student at the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith.

Shreoshi Wright, 26, died at Mercy Hospital after she struck another vehicle, according to Arkansas State Police. A mother and her two children, who were in the other vehicle, were injured.

According to an ASP report, Wright was traveling east, speeding along Rogers Avenue, lost control of her Honda Accord and spun sideways into a Honda Odyssey that was traveling west.

On Tuesday (Nov. 29), Wright's friends remembered the UAFS junior, who was uninterested in Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, through handwritten letters after struggling to find photos of her.

"She wasn't with the norm. She would stray away from any social media. Trying to find a picture for her was rather hard," Edward Merida, a close friend, said.

Heather Aleshire, who considered Wright her best friend, said she deleted the only photo of the two of them together.

"Because it wasn't a good photo of us -- and you think you're going to be able to take photos of people later, so I don't even have a photo of her," she said.

The letters described Wright as open, funny, kind and loving. They were then collected in a jar and will be read aloud during her memorial service Thursday at 12 p.m. on the UAFS campus.

Wright was Bangladesh and was studying International Business.
