MercyMe, a popular Christian rock band, released this statement on Wednesday after learning of the woman's death: "Our hearts continue to break for these families and all those who knew them. We continue to pray and ask your prayers for everyone affected by this accident, that God would bring healing, comfort, peace and understanding at a time when they are desperately needed."
