BRUNSWICK, GA -

A 19-year-old is in the hospital awaiting charges of vehicular homicide.

Georgia State Patrol says Kyle Casimir purposely crashed his car in a suicide attempt last weekend, but ended up killing Renee Dowdy and critically injuring her husband Dwayne.

"That's devastating, and she was actually headed to church," said Michelle Russell, Dowdy's sister.

Renee was well known for volunteering throughout the community. Relatives say she was friendly and never met a stranger.

"We're going to miss her. We're numb now, you know. We're just beginning to get over this, but we love her," said Johnnie Russell, Dowdy's brother-in-law. 

Although dealing with one loss, the family is still fighting for Renee's husband to pull through.

"We're going back and forth to Jacksonville to let him know that we love him and we got to get him well," said Johnnie Russell.

Renee Dowdy will be laid to rest on Saturday. Her family is asking for prayers for themselves and the teen driver as well.
