Peace 2011 graduate, Kasie Leigh Moore, died early Friday morning after being hit by an SUV on Highway 70.

According to the State Highway Patrol, the 23-year-old Clayton native was walking on Highway 70 near Guy Road when she was hit by an SUV around 3 a.m.

Moore was a member of the Pacer Softball team. Her twin sister, Lindsey, also attended Peace.

“She was so nice,” said Peace junior Jami Upchurch. “She was super organized, very involved with school. I feel horrible for her and her family. Especially her sister. They were so close.”

SHP says speed was not a factor in the accident and that the driver will not be charged.
