WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WRIC) — A funeral service is scheduled for today for Shelby Pressley, a 22-year-old mother of two who died in a crash early Sunday morning on I-64.

The service is taking place on November 5 at 11 a.m. at Nelson’s Funeral home in Williamsburg.

Pressley was driving home around at roughly 4:39 a.m. on Sunday when her SUV flipped on 64 east and fell between an opening on a bridge. The vehicle fell about 60 feet.

Pressley was pronounced dead at the scene. She leaves behind a daughter and 4-month-old son.

“She was a terrific mom and a terrific daughter and my best friend. She is just an amazing amazing girl,” says Lisa Matykowski, Shelby Pressley’s mother.
