An ATV accident claims the life of a Texarkana, Arkansas woman.

She's been identified as 30-year-old Amber Bruce.

It's been a tough few days for family and friends, but they say they'll never forget what a great person she was.

The accident happened Saturday night near Miller County Road 306.

Family says it happened around 11:15pm.

Bruce was riding an ATV with her boyfriend, Michael Rowton.

The hill they were on turned out to be much steeper then they thought.

Bruce, who was driving, lost control of the ATV, and both were thrown off.

Both were not wearing protective gear.

Rowton received minor injuries, but Bruce was pronounced dead at the scene.

"It just felt like somebody ripped my heart out, I know I'll be lost without her," said mother Joann Bruce. "It's going to be a loss, she'll be missed."

Amber worked at a Tobacco Discount Store in Texarkana.

Friends say she was adventurous, very active, and loved the outdoors.

She also was an outstanding mother to a 9-year-old boy and a 6-year-old girl.

A funeral hasn't been set up since the family is struggling with costs.

So a few community fundraisers are being organized.

A BBQ is currently being put together, details are still unknown.

A softball tournament will be held this Saturday at Hobo Jungle Park.

The tournament starts in the morning hours, and t-shirts and bracelets will be sold (all funds going towards funeral costs).

An account has been set up through Wells Fargo, account #6784636331 or just say Amber Bruce Memorial Fund.

Donations can also be given to the funeral home.
