Members of the Lindsey Wilson College community will gather Wednesday evening to remember a student and teammate who died in a car accident on Sunday, January 19, 2020, during a head-on collision in LaRue County, Ky.

The candlelight service for D'Jharriah A. Davis, known as DJ, will be held at 8:30pmCT, Wednesday evening, January 22, 2020, in the Norma and Glen Hodge Center for Discipleship, 402 Helen Flatt Drive, Columbia, KY. Davis, a psychophysiology freshman from Lexington, Ky., was a member of the women's track & field team. She was 18 years old.

"We are deeply saddened to learn of DJ's death," said LWC President William T. Luckey Jr. "I ask that you please join me in extending our most sincere thoughts and prayers for DJ's family, friends and teachers touched by this heartbreaking loss."

Director of Blue Raider track & field programs and cross country head coach Nick Wilson said Davis was a wonderful person and an important member of the track & field program.

"DJ was a strong, dedicated and driven individual," said Wilson. "Rare qualities that we search for in our recruiting process. Our staff knew without a doubt that DJ had tremendous potential as a student athlete and we had only just begun to see her full talent. I extend my condolences to her family and friends. DJ will be missed and remembered."

Funeral services for Davis will be announced via the college's website and social media accounts.

College officials said one other LWC student was hospitalized after the crash and remains in critical condition. The student's family has requested privacy.
