Nicole Michelle Lee


June 22, 1989 -
Jan. 26, 2008

Nicole Michelle Lee was killed in a car accident on Jan. 26, 2008. The driver fell asleep, hitting a tree going 55 MPH. There were no skids or brake marks. All five students in the car were Honor Students at Virginia Tech. They were on their way back to college from a skiing trip to Snowshoe Resort ,West Virginia. My daughter, Nicole, was in the front passenger seat of a 1999 Nissan Pathfinder headed along US 219 in Greenbrier County when the car left the road and hit the tree. She had to be cut out of the wreckage. We were not notified for a couple hours and had not enough time to travel to that part of West Virginia or Virginia in order to see our daughter alive. All five victims were taken to Greenbrier Valley Medical Center. Nicole was later transferred to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead. The driver had a quick hearing, without our notification. He plead NO CONTEST and received a $25.00 fine. I have been enraged with the laws and criminal system since that day.
