Ashlee Sokalski passes away due to injuries after Motocross crash

The family of 19 year-old motocross rider Ashlee Sokalski made the difficult decision last night to pull Ashlee from life support after doctors told them there was nothing further they could do to save her.

Ashlee was competing in her second race at the 29th Annual AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship in Hurricane Mills, TN when she came down after a jump and was thrown from her motorcycle, which ended up bouncing back and landing on top of her.

Doctors at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in nearby Nashville, did everything they could to help the young lady, who was the fastest woman competing from her home state of Michigan.   Early Tuesday morning, Ashlee’s kidneys failed and her condition continued to deteriorate through the day.

Fundraising efforts will continue to aid the family through this difficult time.   Donations efforts and memorial events continue to be announced on Ashlee’s webpage.

The family has not yet announced funeral arrangements for Ashlee.

    Tom…. shut your face. If you are close to the family, then perhaps you should take a more professional approach rather than bouncing from site to site putting people on blast. Ugh.
    Shortly after the accident, NO ONE knew exactly what happened except those who witnessed it first hand. Those of us outside the event went with credible resources. Obviously those sources weren’t all that credible, but thats how the grapevine works.

    We all know how much we racer’s love racing,but it”s time’s like these that make you ask yourself ,should I be doing this? We seem to come to the same answer each time,YES. It’s what we do. So to Ashlee’s parent’s and loved ones I will pray to God today and ask him to make it a little easier on you each and every day,for I know your pain will never go away. ……………………….Mikey
