A few days after suffering serious injuries in an accident, Zoe Sozo Bethel left us.
The former model and Right Side Broadcasting Network reporter, who was crowned Miss Alabama for America Strong in 2021, died Feb. 18 “after succumbing to her injuries,” her family confirmed on Instagram. She was 27 years old.
Although few details of the accident have been made public, Zoe was living and working in Miami at the time of her death. E! News has contacted authorities for comment.
Following the incident, Zoe’s family took to their social media platform to ask for prayers. “Zoe was in an accident on Thursday evening February 10 and suffered severe brain/brainstem damage and is in a coma,” the Instagram post read. “Unfortunately the doctors say the damage cannot be repaired and he may not have much time left.”
“We pray for God’s will to be done, no matter what that may look like,” the post continued. “It has been an abrupt and very traumatic situation for our family, and we can imagine what a shock it will be for everyone who knows her and cares for her.”
