A North Carolina family is now preparing for a funeral instead of a Thanksgiving celebration, as they mourn the loss of 57-year-old Vivian Ellis, a mother of 8 who was tragically struck by a van in Zebulon, Tuesday night.
The Zebulon police department has reported that the driver of the van stayed at the scene and has been cooperating with authorities. However, details about where Ellis was standing when the accident occurred and the events leading up to it have not yet been disclosed.
The police suspect that the rainy weather may have been a contributing factor, and it remains uncertain whether the van driver will face any criminal charges. Despite the devastating loss, a family member shared that they have already forgiven the driver, demonstrating an incredible act of compa*sion in the face of tragedy.
As the investigation continues, the family is left to grapple with the heartbreaking reality of their sudden loss.
