TEMPE, AZ - Although it's painful, Candy Turner shares what it was like when the car she was driving flipped after a crash in Phoenix on July 5.
Her pregnant daughter, Karlisha Randolph, didn't make it. Karlisha's unborn son was delivered and survived.
"I still don't understand," she says. "It's confusing still to me. I can't cope with it because I don't understand."
It's been barely a week since it happened, and Turner is still bearing the scars of the tragic wreck she said happened so fast.
"I just remember the sound, the darkness. I don't remember how long the darkness lasted."
Family and friends were helping Turner move past that darkness on Saturday by getting together to wash cars in order to cover funeral expenses for 24-year-old Karlisha.
Turner says the surviving kids, ages 2 and 7, are doing fine.
The baby who was delivered and survived has been named Jeremiah. He is still in the hospital, but said to be doing well.
"I gotta keep going to do this for her," said Turner.
As for the man who caused the crash, he was arrested and charged with second degree murder and aggravated assault.
