Rising Country Star Taylor Dee Dies at 33 After Rollover Car Crash

Police say she was “found outside the vehicle a short distance away in grave condition.”

Singer Taylor Dee died at the age of 33 following a rollover car crash in Texas on March 14.

The rising country music star — born Taylor Dawn Carroll — suffered fatal injuries when her SUV ran into a barrier on State Highway 183 near Euless, Texas.

“Taylor Dee was the real deal,” Linda Wilson, president of the Texas Country Music Association, told CBS DFW. “A true talent with a heart and passion not only for her music but for people. In every performance, her talent was evident, but more importantly she allowed her fans to know her heart. She will be missed tremendously.”

Officials believe Taylor missed a turn off the exit in her 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer and slammed into a barrier, causing the vehicle to roll over and hit an overhead sign.

Taylor was reportedly not wearing a seat belt and ejected from the SUV. Police say she was “found outside the vehicle a short distance away in grave condition.” She was transported to a nearby hospital where she later died from the injuries.

A male passenger, said to be wearing a seat belt, survived with minor injuries. He was released from the hospital the next day.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office is performing a toxicology screen to see if alcohol played a role.
