Ace, co-host of the syndicated Ace & TJ Morning show, lost his 21-year old daughter in a car crash Wednesday morning. Investigators say the incident took place just after midnight in Mooresville, North Carolina.
Authorities say Payton Cannon was driving in her 2020 BMW when the vehicle ran off the right side of the road and hit a tree at a high rate of speed.
The Ace and TJ Show originates from Charlotte.
