Hughes, 22, was a passenger on a motorcycle that was in a collision, however, the accident is still being investigated by authorities.

“Haven was a bright, shining light in our newsroom and everywhere she went,” read a statement.

The young woman had just gotten her start in the news business and she was described as having a bright smile and “always backed up with an energetic and positive approach to life.”

In a double blow to the station, it was also announced that Chris Scott, a producer, passed away on Tuesday from an unknown illness.

“Viewers never got to see Chris, but he was the mastermind working behind the scenes, making sure the newscast was top-notch.”

Scott worked closely with reporters, videographers, and production staff, according to the station.

He got his start in television working in the sports department before transitioning to news.

However, Chris was still a big sports fan and supported the Arizona Razorbacks and the St Louis Cardinals.
