Ailee Olsen, a junior studying child development, said she had a humanities class with Trunnell in 2014.

“She was so kind and so caring,” Olsen said. “After two years, she still remembered my name and always came up to say hi to me.”

Investigators said a man driving a Ford F-150 swerved to avoid a tire and struck Trunnell’s vehicle in the driver’s side door, according to KSL.

Funeral services will be held on July 9.
