(WMC-TV) – Arrangements have been made for a Memphis teenager who died in a car accident Saturday.

Visitation for Sarah Carmichael will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, October 9 at Hope Presbyterian Church.

Services will be at 1 p.m. Wednesday at  the church as well. A burial will follow in Forest Hill Cemetery East. Instead of bringing flowers, the family asks for people to make donations to   The Regional Medical Center in Memphis, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, or Lifeblood.

The 17-year-old girl was a junior at Houston High School. Her family says she was on her way to work at the Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park when she crashed at the intersection of Brachton Avenue and Poplar Avenue.

Carmichael played on the Houston High School softball team, volunteered at St. Jude, and was an active member of her school's HOSA organization.

Amanda Dominguez was one of Carmichael's best friends. They met while working at Sky Zone and quickly became inseparable.

Dominguez showed Action News 5 a greeting card Carmichael recently left in her car and shared a voicemail message she received shortly before the crash.

"She told me I better stay here and keep her company and hopefully she could get off early, so we could hang out with each other," said Dominguez.

The Germantown Police Department has not released details about the car accident, but her family believes rain may have been a contributing factor.

He just couldn't relate to the type of sickness that it was. And he wasn't, to be honest, they weren't knowledgeable enough of exactly what was going on at the time," said Phillip Johnson.  Mr. Johnson opened up to Jessica Holley about why he's had to frequently use ER services as opposed to conventional care.
