Police Determine Little Women Star Ashley Ross Was at Fault in Fatal Car Crash: Report

Last week, the City of South Fulton Police Department confirmed to PEOPLE in a statement that the accident took place around 11 p.m. on April 26.

"The initial crash investigation shows that Ms. Ross was traveling south in a Nissan Sentra on Old National Highway," read the statement. "Her car hit the right-side curb, crossed into the northbound lanes and struck a Ford Focus that was traveling north head-on. Ms. Ross received serious injuries and was transported to an area hospital for treatment, where she died Monday night. The driver of the other vehicle received minor injuries and was treated at the scene."

A public information officer for the department added that it was not a hit-and-run accident.

"There was no third vehicle involved," the PIO told PEOPLE. "There has not been any mention of driving under the influence is a factor."

Ross' family will hold a memorial for the reality star on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. ET, with a "celebration of life" streaming live at msminniemedia.com. The family is accepting flowers and cards, as well as donations via different platforms.

In the statement announcing her death last week, her management team said, "It is with profound sadness that we confirm on behalf of the family of Ashley Ross aka 'Ms. Minnie' of Little Women: Atlanta has succumbed to injuries from a tragic hit and run car accident today at the age of 34. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time."

A Lifetime rep remembered Ross as "the most beautiful, kind, giving, generous human ever" in a statement to PEOPLE.

"She was adored by cast and crew because she always wore her heart on her sleeve," the statement continued. "There's nothing she wouldn't do for those she loved."
