Jessica Smith - a Good Samaritan who tragically died in Greenville County, South Carolina

Jessica Smith
Jessica Nicole Smith, age 29, died on September 26, 2015, on a highway in Greenville County, South Carolina.

At about 1:30 a.m., Jessica was the passenger in a vehicle near Interstate 385 and U.S. 276. She came across a motor vehicle accident involving a pick-up truck on a highway bridge and got out of her vehicle to see if she could help.

She searched the truck and the vicinity but found no one. She leaned over the edge of the bridge calling out for anyone who was injured or in distress.

It is believed that Jessica heard a voice responding and in order to get a better look at what was happening below, she stepped over the railing.

It was then that she fell 23 feet to the base of the bridge, fatally injuring herself. Tragically she died at the scene.

There is no report on the condition of the male pick-up truck driver.

Jessica was a certified nursing assistant and the mother of a nine year old son.
Angels of God, pray for Jessica and for those who have lost her.

Jessica's loved ones are devastated over her sudden and tragic death. Family members stated that Jessica was always there for others. She died as she lived, helping others. She was a loving mother who did her best. She will be forever mourned.

Jessica is survived by many loving friends and family members including her 9 year old son, Isaiah.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and are gone before we can say goodbye.

Jessica was a Good Samaritan. Pray for all who die while coming to the aid of others.

Pray that Jessica is in heaven. Pray that she is at peace and is with God. Amen.
