“I don’t know what to say, but I know one thing, the way my daughter lost her life. it wasn’t right. It ain’t right,” said Ollie Luckett, Tracey’s father.

According to the police report, Smith and her son were making a left turn at an intersection when Wilks cut them off and crashed into him.

Her son adds that when his mother went to talk to the driver, he threatened to kill her and then shot her in the chest.

Luckett blamed the shooting on repetitive road rage issues.

“You know how it is on these streets. You probably ride it. You know how these people are acting. It’s ridiculous. My daughter shouldn’t have lost her life like that,” Luckett added.
