On January 25, 2021, Naomi Sparrow was traveling on I-65 when she lost control of her car, likely due to poor road conditions, and struck a guard rail. While her vehicle was disabled in the roadway, a semi-truck struck her car, which then caused it to be struck by an SUV.

Naomi was killed.

She left behind her four children and granddaughter, who will never be the same. Naomi is remembered for her free spirit and the force with which she lived, in love, respect, and honor of everything around her.
