Mother Mourns Daughter Killed in Highway 99 Crash

Linda Mozingo’s daughter, Amy, was killed Wednesday in a fiery car crash on Highway 99 in south Sacramento.

“I’ll miss her so much. She was my best friend,” Mozingo told FOX40.

She thanked the three young men who tried to help Amy escape her car.

“I would love to talk to them and thank them for trying to help her. Because that’s the worst part not knowing exactly what happened. If she said anything,” Mozingo said. “Thank you to all the boys. I’m sure they did the best that they could.”

Amy leaves behind a husband and 4-year-old son, Nathan. Her child’s car seat was in the car.

“She was a good mother to him. He doesn’t know yet. We’re trying to figure that out, how to deal with that,” Mozingo said.

It will take some prayers and love from family and friends and warm memories to help Mozingo, who lost her husband a year-and-a-half ago, get through these next difficult days ahead.

The Mozingo family has set up an account for Nathan. To donate, head to any Chase Bank branch and the account is under Linda Mozingo’s name.

    So sad. I do want to say though, how impressed I am at the three young men who tried to help this woman. They are heroes for stepping up and trying to do what they could when a lot of other people (adults) walked away. Their parents should be very proud of the young men they raised.
