Sherill and a passenger, 54-year-old Stevie Russell of Grimsley, were both killed in the crash.

Another passenger, 20-year-old Tiffany Wilson, was injured in the crash.

According to the accident report, all involved parties were under the influence of both drugs and alcohol at the time of the crash; none were wearing seatbelts.
