Both Paso Robles sisters who were involved in a collision with a big rig truck earlier this week in the Central Valley have now died. The collision, which occurred on Tuesday morning, left Brittni Frace dead at the scene. Brynn Frace succumbed to her injuries on Thursday.
The sisters were graduates of Atascadero High School, where they starred on the track team. Brittni Frace moved on to track and field and cross country at Chico State Uinversity, and Brynn Frace joined her on the Northern California campus.
On Tuesday morning, the sisters were driving back from the Central Coast to Chico State. After stopping for gas, Brynn Frace turned the 2004 Chevrolet she was driving onto Highway 198 without yielding to the driver of the Peterbilt truck. The front of the Peterbilt hit the left side of the Chevrolet.
Brynn Frace was taken to the hospital in critical condition following the crash. The 52-year-old driver of the Peterbilt did not suffer any injuries.
Following Brynn’s death on Thursday, Highlands Church in Paso Robles posted on Facebook a bible verse, 2 Timothy 4:7, that the victims’ mother had asked to share.
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
Highlands Church also thanked community members for their prayers and for bringing flowers and notes to a cross in honor of the Frace sisters.
