She wasn't out there by coincidence. She was out there for a cause.

He didn't run into her by accident. He ran into her because he supported the opposing cause.

From either of those viewpoints, she died for the cause. Dying for a cause doesn't automatically make the cause right, of course (though Heyer was on the right side of that one); but it does meet the definition of 'martyr'.
