Police responded to a single-vehicle crash in the 6000 block of Hwy 98 early December 15, 2017. Short was pronounced dead on the scene.

“[Michele’] was very sweet, very outgoing, very positive," said her sister Camille. "She gave a lot of people encouraging words, and she really didn’t stress about a lot of situations."
