A former worker on former President Obama’s campaign was killed in a car crash in Southern California last week. According to Peggy Moore’s friends and colleagues, she was driving with her wife, Hope Wood on the westbound lane of State Route 76 in Fallbrook, 55 miles north of San Diego, on Friday night when their Jeep pickup truck collided with a Chrysler sedan.

According to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office, the Jeep had collided with a sedan traveling in the opposite direction. In total, the jeep had three people in it, including an unidentified 60-year-old man driving it. A third passenger in the Jeep survived the crash, per the New York Post.

Wood, who was 48 at the time of her death, died as a result of blunt force trauma and torso trauma. The unidentified 60-year-old man had the same cause of death as Wood.

The person driving the sedan was also killed in the collusion, according to officials. During the incident, the driver had reportedly swerved into the highway’s westbound lanes and struck a white Jeep Gladiator.

A silver Toyota Camry behind the Jeep was reportedly involved in a minor sideswipe, per the California Highway Patrol.

Moore worked on Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. She also served as an advisor to former Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf.

In 2019, she and Hope began the political consulting firm Hope Action Change.

While Obama is yet to say anything publicly about their deaths, the tragic incident has been mourned by a couple of politicians, including U.S. Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), who took to X to express sorrowful feelings over the tragic deaths.

“I’m heartbroken to hear of the tragic loss of Peggy Moore and Hope Wood. Peggy was a friend, an activist, and one of the best organizers I knew. Her passion and fight for justice and equality is what brought her and Hope together,” she wrote, adding, “Both Peggy and Hope made an impact on our community, on our city, on our state, and on our nation that will be felt for generations to come.”

The chair of the California Democratic Party, Rusty Hicks, has also reacted to news of her passing, writing, “She was an incredible political talent & member of Team CADEM who brought a passion for organizing & a commitment to justice every single day. Our thoughts are with her family & the many friends who loved her. Rest In Power, Peggy.”
