Cara McCollum, a former Miss New Jersey who was injured last week in a car crash, died from her injuries early Monday morning.
According to a post on the Prayers for Cara Facebook page, McCollum, 24, died shortly after 4:30 a.m. surrounded by her family.
"Cara passed away this morning. Her family was with her in the operating room, and she died peacefully at 4:31a.m.," Prayers for Cara posted. "Before she died, Cara made the selfless decision to donate her organs. At this very moment, she is saving lives."
"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 post continued.
