Students at the Fort Valley State University are mourning two of their colleagues who died in a vehicle collision on Saturday, March 30. The crash, meanwhile, is still under investigation.


13WMAZ reports that close to a hundred students came together on Monday, April 1, to pray and try to stay in high spirits following the news that two female sophomores, 20-year-old Precious Waters and Kearsten Robinson, 19, perished in the fatal car crash.


Jabias McWilliams, one of the students who spoke with the TV station, mentioned that both girls were very active in the school’s dance team.


"When I see them do it [dance], I can tell they always felt good dancing. That's just something they love to do," said McWilliams.

He added:

"They're in a better place, so we just have to think about it like that."

Another student, Dexter Grier, recalled that Waters and Robinson had bright personalities: "Every time you saw them, they had a smile on their face. They were always down to chill. They were very cool people. I just loved them, man."

Grier revealed that he saw the girls the very day they were reported dead and that their demise affects the entire student body.


"To get that news about them that night, and I had just seen them that day, it really got to me. ..Keep everybody just happy because this is a sad moment and I believe everybody just should come together and just talk about it.”

The students sold baked goods and lemonade to raise money for the families of Waters and Robinson who were reportedly best friends and roommates. A vigil was also held in their honor on Tuesday, April 2.

In a statement obtained by AJC.com, Fort Valley State University said the girls’ “joy and smiles would be missed by everyone who knew them, and there will be a void on campus wherever their spirit was present.”



According to Dailymail.com, Robinson’s mother, LaToya Carter, shared on social media that a funeral for her daughter would hold on Thursday, April 4.

The Georgia State Patrol told 13WMAZ that Waters and Robinson’s car collided with an 18-wheeler fuel truck driven by a 55-year-old Georgia Harris of Macon at GA-49 on Woolfolk Road.


The ladies’ car, driven by Precious Waters, is said to have crossed the center line and struck Harris’s truck, causing both vehicles to catch fire.

Harris also lost her life in the crash that officials are still investigating.
