Remembering Sierra Allen
Friends are remembering 27-year-old Sierra Allen after her tragic death Saturday night after being hit by a driver charged with Driving While Intoxicated.
The accident happened on Hendersonville Road as Sierra was driving her moped Northbound on US-25. 45-year-old Kimberly Folston of Asheville was driving Southbound in a red 1993 Chevrolet Lumina when police say she crossed the center lane and struck Allen's moped. Allen was pronounced dead at the scene.
Friends say Allen was a vibrant young woman who loved everyone and was never one to criticize others. They say she was also a talented singer who loved jump into song no matter where she might be. Friends say she'll be sorely missed.
The District Aattorney's Office says it's now waiting on the completion of the investigation before filing additional charges which would include a minimum of felony death by motor vehicle.
