Mitchell's husband, 23-year-old Joey Mitchell, was also in the car.
He was injured, along with the driver of the cement truck, 45-year-old Harry Nash
Right now, authorities are trying to figure out if other factors may have been involved in the crash.

Authorities say everyone involved was wearing a seat belt.
