ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – A former beauty queen who was critically injured in a car crash one week ago has died.
Although it had just snowed, police have not said whether the weather played a factor in the crash.
McCollum was rushed to a nearby hospital in critical condition.
On Monday, McCollum’s boyfriend and family announced that they were donating her organs.
“We’ve prayed constantly for a miracle, and we believe God has answered our prayers. Although it’s not the miracle that we first envisioned, it’s a miracle nonetheless,” the Facebook post read.
In 2013, McCollum won the Miss New Jersey pageant and then competed in the 2014 Miss America contest.
