Another car crash claims the life of a young driver.

25-year-old Brooks Breslin was killed on Centerville Road in Leon County.

Her close friend Melissa Scruggs says, "When she walked into a room, you couldn't help but want to talk to her. She had the most contagious giggle."

25-year-old Brooks Breslin's giggle is the only one missing in a room of her close friends.

Scruggs says, "She was just such a dreamer. She didn't care what anybody though. She lived life just completely free. I looked up to her in more ways than she'll ever know."

The giggles turned into tears once Breslin's friends thought about their friend's death.

Friend Jessi Miller says, "Everyone loved her. She had no enemies."

The Florida Highway Patrol says around 4:00 Sunday morning. Breslin was driving north on Centerville Road when her 2002 Toyota veered off the road and then swerved between lanes.

Troopers say Breslin's car then hit a tree head on.

Troopers pronounced Breslin dead at the scene.

Carlton Brimm lives on Brim Lane right across from where the crash happened.

He says, "I came out and I could see the lights from my yard. When I got up here, I saw that the road was blocked. I knew it was a crash. The car was over in the woods so I couldn't see it."

Brandi Hubbell is also a close friend of Breslin. She says, "She was a very loving, outgoing fun person. She loved nature and wildlife. She loved animals, especially her pet, Dixie, a black Lab. She was a very loyal friend."

"Life will never be the same without her. We'll think about you every day." Says, Scruggs.

Breslin graduated from Lincoln High School. She's survived by her mother and sister.

Troopers have not said what caused Breslin to swerve off the road. Authorities are still investigating the crash. They say toxicology reports are pending.
