A Samford University student was killed late Friday night in a two-car crash, right next to her parents' home in Vestavia Hills.

Nineteen-year-old Trevelyn Campbell was visiting her family right before she was killed.

She was by all accounts a talented artist who had big dreams. Her Facebook page shows some of her artistic flair.

Trevelyn's father Clay Campbell is devastated by the loss, but he praised his talented daughter. Trevelyn attended Briarwood Christian School along with the Alabama School of Fine Arts, and she was continuing her education at Samford University.

Clay Campbell says Trevelyn was enjoying some family time at their home in Vestavia Hills. At about 11 p.m. on Friday, he said she pulled out and he heard a huge crash.

Trevelyn's car was broadsided by the other driver. Vestavia Hills Police aren't releasing any details as they continue to investigate.

Outside her family's home, people who knew and loved Trevelyn came to offer some consolation to her parents. Clay Campbell says he knows she's with the Lord, but he added, "It's still so hard."

He's counting on the close bond of fellow Briarwood employees, church members, and Trevelyn's many friends to sustain them through their grief.
