LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A spirit filled with a passion for making every day the best.

“When Kendall came in with those bright, beautiful eyes she kind of like lit up the place," Donna Porter, Kendall Daub's instructor at Paul Mitchell, said.

Kendall Daub, 19, was killed in a car crash Monday night, Dec. 2, at Third Street and Kenton near Churchill Downs.

Friends say Daub and her friend Brandon Mudd were on their way to another friend’s house when they crashed.

Police say they ran a stop sign.

“She was crazy. She was amazing. She could warm your heart. She could make your day," Molly Malone, friend of Daub and Mudd, said.

Daub was a graduate of Butler High School and attended the Paul Mitchell School for cosmetology.

“One of my friends isn't here and it doesn't seem real,” Malone said.

“She was a light and just too young to be put out but we love her and are going to miss her,” Porter said.

Friends say Daub was focused on her family. One of her last Facebook posts mentioned helping out her mom. Those at Paul Mitchell say she was devoted to charity work through the school.
They say she was a trailblazer and a stylist who can't be matched.

“We love her. We remember her.  There really aren't any words,” Porter said.

Friends say Mudd is in a coma. The UPS driver injured has now been released from the hospital.
