Goodwin and her colleagues, Jackson Buffington, Sean Husk, and Shannon Foster, were supporting the North Carolina State Highway Patrol in blocking a section of interstate in northeast Charlotte near West WT Harris Boulevard.
These cops had taken the place of previous officers who had stopped the route when a vehicle carrying grain spilled a sticky substance on it at 10:30 p.m.
Chief Jennings said the roadway had been cleaned enough to restore one southbound lane around 1 a.m. Later, at 3:40 a.m, two trucks driving southward collided. Those vehicles thereafter crashed with the cops from the CMPD.

She was a mother and a wife. She had three kids to look after, whereas her firefighter husband had the job where the hours were as just demanding as hers.
Despite knowing that her job was tough, she diligently worked for the department for the last six years. Chief Jennings said that he knew she did not only take it as a job, but she wanted to make it her career.
