Television personality and professional driver Jessi Combs died in the late August 2019.
According to reports gathered Jessi Combs was killed in a mechanical failure that occurred during a high-speed crash.
Combs was attempting to break a land speed record in a jet car in the Alvord Desert about 90 miles south of Burns, Oregon, on Aug. 27.
Officials say the front wheel of her vehicle suffered a mechanical problem, likely from hitting something on the ground, and that caused the front wheel assembly to collapse.
The crash happened at speeds near 550 mph.
Combs, a Long Beach resident, was widely known in the niche sport of jet car racing and was trying to break the Women’s Land Speed Record of 512 mph set in 1976 by Kitty O’Neil when she died. Combs wrote on Instagram two days before the crash, “People say I’m crazy. I say thank you.”
Combs was also known for appearances on Discovery’s “Mythbusters” and “Break Room” as well as “Overhaulin'” and “All Girls Garage” on Velocity.
Officials say she died from injuries before her vehicle became engulfed in fire.
