Reed died on October 26, 2012, two days shy of her 33rd birthday, in a road accident. She was struck while talking on the phone in Lawrenceville, Georgia, on U.S. Highway 29 (near Hamilton Road) while crossing the street.[4][5] CPR was performed on Reed, however, she was pronounced dead on arrival at Gwinnett Medical Center in Duluth, Georgia.[6][7]

According to Gwinnett County police, no charges are expected against the driver who accidentally struck Reed with his automobile.
