Nov 24, 2007 | Posted by: Charlotte.com | Full story: Charlotte.com

A woman trying to cross an uptown Charlotte street was killed and three others were injured after a driver struck another car, which spun into two pedestrians, police said.

Mellonee Ann Ball, 43, was pronounced dead at the scene of the wreck, at the intersection of North Tryon Street and 11th Street near the Brookshire Freeway.

Police said Ball was crossing the street with Aubrie Shenecquia Harris just before 8:30 this morning. Investigators believe that's when Mozelle Megail Mason drove a 1997 Jeep Cherokee through a red light and hit the passenger side of Sandra Samuel Wilson's 2005 Suzuki Aero. Read more

Well, hopefully the driver that caused this will have the driver put in jail, and severely punished. A person is dead, because of a stupid driver.

I know the driver....more than likely she was on the phone, texting on her phone, or fell asleep at the wheel like she does quite frequently....she shows no remorse and accepts no responsibility for what has happened.
