MARYVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - A crash may have taken her life, but Amelia Keown's spirit is still felt in her community.
On Sunday, a crowd gathered at Fairview United Methodist Church to not only remember the William Blount High School student, but also to help cover the cost of her funeral and other expenses.
A number of local businesses donated things to be raffled off in the fundraiser.
Family supporters also picked up a pen to try to ink a new law into reality.
"What we would like is a law passed in Amelia's name, called 'Amelia's Law.' It's similar to three strikes you're out law, only for any felony that endangers the public," said Amanda and William Moore, Amelia's mom and stepfather.
Keown was killed after police say 44-year-old John Perkins crossed the center line of Highway 411 in Blount County.
The event kicked off with more than 100 motorcycle riders, including members of the Shepherd's Riding Club, making the trip from William Blount HS to the church.
