Josh and Anna Duggar are mourning a 22-year-old relative who passed away earlier this week. According to exclusive coverage by Radar Online, it was on Wednesday in Minnesota that Rebecca Waller was killed in a vehicular accident.
Documents obtained by the outlet explain, the young driver “was driving on Highway 55 in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota when she turned north ‘against a red light.'” When Waller made an attempt to “cross westbound traffic” two vehicles slammed into her.
The accident is currently an “open investigation”
Police records reveal Rebecca was struck by a pickup truck before being struck by a semi-tractor. The road was reportedly “dry” at the time of the accident.
As of Thursday, the accident was still an “open investigation.” All three drivers were wearing their seat belts at the time of the accident. The two drivers that hit Rebecca did not have alcohol in their system. It is unclear if Rebecca had any in hers as the document lists her alcohol intake as “unknown.”
How is Rebecca Waller related to the Duggar family?
Rebecca is related to Anna Duggar through her sister Priscilla Waller. The relationship makes her the sister-in-law of Anna and Josh.
It was Priscilla’s husband David that took to Instagram later Wednesday night to confirm Rebecca had passed away.
“With heavy hearts, we received a phone call today that David’s youngest sister, Rebecca went home to heaven today, October 2, at around 8:30 a.m. The twenty-two years of life that God gave us with her seem so short, but in light of eternity all of our lives are short.”
A day later, Anna Duggar took to social media to pay tribute to Rebecca.
Rebecca will be greatly missed. Love you so much – keeping your family in our prayers. https://t.co/IwlmQhwX1s

Fans of the Duggar family were quick to shower Anna with love and support during the trying time.
“I am so very sad for all of her loved ones that are grieving. I will be praying that lifts your heavy hearts,” one follower penned.
Many other followers opted to keep their responses short and sweet. Some shared condolences. Others sent prayers.
Overall, fans seemed ready to give Anna and her husband Josh the time they needed to mourn their loved one.
Despite his devastation, Rebecca’s brother finds peace of mind in knowing his sister “is in heaven.” David proceeded to clarify that he did not believe her place in heaven was earned by being a good person. He believes her relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ was to thank.
