Country singer Kylie Rae Harris, from Wylie, Texas, was one of two people killed in a three-vehicle crash in New Mexico on Wednesday night, Sept. 4.
The Taos County Sheriff’s Office said one of the other drivers, a 16-year-old girl, also was killed and that the third driver escaped injury in the crash on State Road 522.
Harris was on her way to Taos when the crash occurred. She was scheduled to take the stage at the annual Big Barn Dance Music Festival on Thursday, Sept. 5, according to Harris’s Instagram Stories.
Harris wrote in her last tweet, “Fuel range is 46 miles and I’m 36 from the nearest gas station. Dear baby Jesus please don’t let me get stranded in NM.”
