Police stated she failed to make a sharp turn along a residential road that becomes a highway in certain sections.

Former "American Idol" contestant Haley Smith died on August 31 after she was once serious about a sad motorbike crash in Maine. Haley was reportedly pronounced dead at the scene in Millinocket, Maine.

"I just love the commitment to you just being who you are, and just the natural gift", Jackson told her after her performance. "A Sergeant from the Penobscot County Sheriff's office and an officer from Old Town Police Department assisted in the crash investigation". She lived in a log cabin and was once simply 18 on the time.

Smith, who is from Utah, appeared in Season 11 of American Idol in 2012.

The singer's family believes a deer might have caused the tragic accident which happened on Saturday in Millinocket, Maine, reports TMZ. Her time on American Idol was brief as she didn't make it past the second Hollywood round. I definitely love being outdoors. Tyler seemed particularly impressed, telling Smith he loved her voice and was honored to hear her sing, adding she was right out of his "era".

TMZ said her family were preparing to celebrate her 27th birthday in November.
