Family and friends speak out after Bedford County crash

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - A high school reunion in a hospital. That's what happened when a group of former Stauntan River High School students found out one of their classmates, Amoni Logan from Goodview, was involved in a two-car crash.

"She is so outgoing, her laugh is so contagious, once she starts going she's not going to stop, and everyone aronud her is going to start laughing too. She just loves to dance and be silly and loves hanging out with her friends," Logan's friend Makena Tuck said.

Logan is a freshman at Radford University and was a cheerleader in high school. She broke both of her legs in the crash and is under sedation to help with her breathing and pain.

"It's basically just a waiting game," Logan's friend Kyra Esarey said.

Tuck added, "Yeah, we're just waiting it out to see, she has a long road of recovery but she's going to be OK."

Both Esarey and Tuck went to school and grew up with Logan. Esarey and Logan are now roommates.

"We have all been here everyday. I think this has made us closer because we are here all day every day," Esarey said.

The friends send their prayers to the family of the other woman involved in the crash, 19-year-old Kendra Shepherd from Hardy. Shepard died after her car crossed over the center line and crashed into Logan's car on Route 619.

Shepard's father, Dwayne Shepherd, is in West Virginia but told WDBJ7 over the phone that his daughter was one of the most talented people he knew and had a musical gift. He said "to know her was to love her," and "she had a heart of gold."

Virginia State Police are still investigating the crash.
