(AP)- Washington D.C. Radio One News & Public Affairs Director, Sheila Stewart has been killed in an automobile accident on Interstate 20 in metro Atlanta.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said that Stewart, a personality with Radio One in Washington, died in the accident early Thursday morning as she was driving to the company’s Atlanta office.

Chris Wegmann, regional vice president for Radio One’s Washington properties, said Stewart had been sending her reports to Washington from Atlanta for several weeks.

Stewart’s co-workers became concerned Thursday morning when she missed her 6 a.m. broadcast. He said Stewart was expected to return to Washington Thursday evening.

    I am heartbroken to hear that this has happened. She was a beautiful person with a beautiful spirit. However, Camella, the report says that Sheila’s car unexpectedly came to a complete stop on the Interstate, and a box truck hit her from behind as a result. I suppose it was very difficult for him / her not to rear end a car when it suddenly stops on a highway. I feel bad for Sheila’s family and the person who hit her. Prayers to both families. I know the person driving the truck must feel awful.

    • Vehicular manslaughter and wreckless driving? Why? She was on a HIGHWAY and her car SUDDENLY STOPPED. Where is the manslaughter and wreckless driving?
