She was 38, The New York Times reports.

Straubel was hit by a car while riding her bicycle in Washoe County, NV.

Generation Collection, which opened in April, makes use of recycled metals for its designs. She formed the company after she “learned that precious metals like gold were a large component of electronic waste,” according to The Times.

Straubel was born in Bulgaria and arrived in the U.S. in 2005 and earned a degree in economics at the University of California at Berkeley. She joined Tesla and worked in several areas of the business, including human resources.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
