Remembering Troutville teen fatally struck by vehicle, MacKenzie Beyers

Local News

ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — MacKenzie Beyers is being remembered by her grandmother after the Troutville teen passed Tuesday.

MacKenzie, a 2020 Lord Botetourt High School graduate, was one of two pedestrians hit by a vehicle on Brandon Avenue SW in Roanoke on May 15. Her grandmother, Vickie Parsons, said the doctors told her family nothing more could be done for her granddaughter, so they let her “go ahead and be with Jesus.”

Parsons remembers MacKenzie as a “tomboy”. She said Beyers enjoyed fishing and riding a four wheeler. She said her “little angel girl” was an organ donor, so her gifts will benefit eight people.
