"She was on her way to work to help other people, to answer these types of calls for auto accidents and other emergencies that people need help with", Daniel Bixby, Jenna's husband, told WCCO-TV.

Jenna Bixby, a Minneapolis 911 dispatcher, was killed February 17, 2018, in a collision with a suspected intoxicated driver in Brooklyn Park.

Asked where Shaka began his misdirected travels, State Patrol Lt. Tiffani Nielson said Sunday there was "nothing we can prove yet".

Bixby started working with Minneapolis emergency communications almost four years ago and helped train new members, the Star Tribune reported.

Jenna L. Bixby, 30, died Saturday night in the head-on crash that closed a section of Hwy.

"She was going to work to save people", said Nikki Orlicki, Bixby's sister, in a phone interview with KARE 11.

"My daughter is 7 years old, and she didn't understand this and she doesn't realize that auntie's gone", Orlicki said. As a 911 Dispatcher, that's what Jenna Bixby did for years - and what she was on her way to do at City Hall when her life was tragically taken late last night", said Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey "My thoughts are with her family, friends, neighbors and all of her colleagues in City Hall who are mourning her loss. She didn't. And when people come across her picture or her story, her husband wants her death to make a difference.

Authorities say alcohol was a factor in the crash. "She was an extraordinary person". She didn't have a choice. No further details have been released.

'Our staff at Minneapolis Emergency Communications is shocked and saddened to lose our teammate Jenna Bixby. she was dedicated to helping others and was taken from us on her way to do just that, ' Hunt's statement read. Jenna worked at 911 for the past three years as a dispatcher, a communications training officer who coached and developed new employees, and a member of our Community Outreach and Education Team, volunteering at community events including fundraisers for Special Olympics. "She will be greatly missed", Hunt wrote.
