The goal is to raise $5,000 to “help pay for the memorial service (Floyd) and her (unborn) child deserve,” according to the page.
Floyd, 27, of Bluffton, taught at Pritchardville Elementary School and Royal Live Oaks Academy in Jasper County before being hired at Hilton Head Island Elementary for the 2017-18 year to teach second grade.
She was the passenger in a SUV driven by her husband, Ryan Floyd, that was one of two vehicles to strike a third vehicle that stalled while turning from U.S. 278 onto Buck Island Road, according to the Beaufort County Coroner’s Office and the Bluffton Police Department.
Floyd was 26 weeks pregnant with her first child, a friend told The Island Packet and Beaufort Gazette Wednesday. The child did not survive.
Ryan Floyd suffered head lacerations and a broken ankle, according to a police department news release late Wednesday afternoon. He was taken by ambulance to the Savannah hospital, according to an earlier report. Joy Nelson, spokesperson for the police department, said on Wednesday that Ryan Floyd was “okay,” but she did not know whether he had been released from the hospital.
A hospital spokesperson said there were no records of a Ryan Floyd as a patient on Wednesday.
The crash happened around 2:45 p.m. as the Floyds traveled eastbound on U.S. 278. Their SUV and a service van struck the left-turning vehicle that had stalled.
The driver of the stalled vehicle was treated at the scene. The van driver was taken to Coastal Carolina Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, the report said.
