Police in the Atlanta area are looking to speak with two drivers of two cars seen passing the model who was fatally shot in the neck while driving last week.

Police are looking to speak to the driver of a white SUV and the driver of a gray sedan that can be seen on surveillance video passing Kelsey Quayle’s vehicle as it travels in the lanes of oncoming traffic. The footage was captured just seconds before the crash occurred, Clayton County Police say.

Quayle, 28, moved to Atlanta from California just two months ago to pursue her modeling career. She was on her way to her job at a dentist's office on October 8 when a bullet struck her in the neck, according to FOX 5 in Atlanta. She was then involved in a multi-car wreck after she lost control of her car and swerved into oncoming traffic, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The crash occurred at approximately 7:02 a.m., police say.

First responders didn’t realize that Quayle was shot until she was transported to a nearby hospital, police say. At first, they thought it was a standard car crash. Family members told FOX 5 that the injury severed the aspiring model’s spinal cord at the base of her brain, causing catastrophic brain damage. Police believe the gunshot injury caused Quayle to lose control, FOX 5 reported last week.

No arrests have been made.

Police have posted the surveillance footage that shows the two vehicles in question.

Anyone with information is urged to contact detectives at 770-477-3648.

People flocked to Quayle’s Instagram, which is full of modeling photographs, to pay their respects and post memories of Quayle. She had traveled and modeled for the IndyCar circuit, according to FOX 59 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
