Sunday, police made a plea for business owners in the area near the crash to check surveillance cameras for footage of the crash, and ask anyone who witnessed the crash to come forward to police.

A memorial for Fick has been created near the intersection in downtown Ingersoll where she died, with pictures, flowers and stuffed animals. Many of the photos feature Fick with her children.
