Funeral For WSU Student, Killed In Accident Before Scheduled Kidney Donation

DETROIT (CBS DETROIT) – A funeral for the Wayne State student killed in a car crash will be held Wednesday morning. Twenty-three-year old Diamond Scott was killed when a car ran a red light.

She was scheduled to give a donate a kidney to a church member.

Her Pastor Zachary Hicks says she was just a giving person.

“She opened up a non-profit with a couple of other ladies geared toward helping people,” said Hicks. “Finding hurting people and helping them to get whole again.”

Hicks told WWJ this wasn’t the first time she signed on to give away an organ.

“She first tried to give her mother the kidney because her mother is a dialysis patient but it was not a match. And so she still felt the call of god to help somebody else and she found out she was a perfect match for Ronald White and she was going to do it.”

Scott is survived by her mother and three older brothers.

Services for Scott will be held at the Faith Clinic Church of God and Christ at 10 a.m. on Wednesday.
