An IndyCar model was driving to work last week when she veered into oncoming traffic and crashed into three other cars.

It turns out she was shot right before her vehicle, a white Mazda 626, veered into oncoming traffic, hitting a Suzuki XL-7 head-on, before being hit by a Ford Escape.

Now, authorities are releasing surveillance videos from the moments before the crash in an effort to track down the alleged shooter.

Capt. Scott Stubbs of Clayton County Police Dept. said it was only after arriving at hospital medics realized Quayle, who was originally from California, had 'suffered a gunshot wound'.

Her family, still in California, flew to Grady Hospital in Atlanta which is where they made the hard decision to take her off life support.

They have been left baffled by what happened to Quayle, according to WSB, and have yet to find any evidence that she was intentionally targeted.

"It seems to us to be random at this time".

"I just want to know who did this".

Quayle moved to Georgia with her boyfriend a few months ago and worked at a dentist's office while pursuing her modeling career. "We have no reports of anyone reporting any gunfire, no reports of anybody driving erratically".

"She was handsome, she was the sweetest person she was humble she was a model but she never let that get to her head. It just doesn't make sense", Martin told WSB-TV.

The model's devastated sister Kayleigh Martin told the station: 'We just have so many unanswered questions.

She pleaded with anyone who might have information on the killing to contact the police immediately.

"Please, please come forward", Martin said. "Please let us know if anybody saw anything".

There's a Gofundme account set up to help Kelsey's family bring her back home to the inland empire and help with funeral costs.
