Afton Braseth and her best friend were inseparable for the past 14 years.

But now, just months after they each gave birth, Lisa Silha has to say goodbye to her best friend.

Braseth was killed Saturday in a head-on collision with a beet truck on Highway 75 near 70th Avenue North in Moorhead.

She was 27.

"It's not something that should happen to someone that young," Silha said on Monday. "She touched so many lives."
