An Elkview woman was killed late Saturday night when her vehicle collided, head-on, with another vehicle.

Candy Lachea Poling, 28, of Elkview, was killed in the crash on Frame Road, near Pequonia Drive in the Elkview area, according to a news release from the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department. She was a nursing student at UC with an 11 year old daughter.

The crash happened at about 11:30 Saturday night.

The driver of the other vehicle is under age 18, so his or her name is being withheld. Withholding names is normal and should not be interpreted as assigning fault, Cpl. B.D. Humphreys.

SO KIDS CAN GO AROUND KILLING PEOPLE AND NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW WHO THEY ARE? IS THIS A GREAT COUNTRY OR WHAT?

Just saw the word killer, so yes. I believe they should have their name known.

When you kill someone, whether by accident or on purpose, you're still a killer. When a 16 year old or 17 year old kills someone on the highway in a head on collision, they are indeed a killer.

The victim’s family says Poling was on her way home from work at the time. She had two jobs and was in school, working to become a nurse but she loved most being a mother. She had two girls and her family says she was currently 16 weeks pregnant.

“Candy's girls meant everything to her,” Midkiff said.

Deputies have not released the name of the other driver involved because he is a juvenile.

It's a tragedy what happened to that woman and for her children who will be motherless. With that being said, I don't think the child involved should be named. He is after all underage. I do believe he should be given the max punishment. What he did was wrong. But I've known someone who killed someone due to drunk driving and only received a 2 year sentence. That's BS. Rip momma.

I care. I'm so sorry for your loss. It's terrible how a news story makes the paper or TV for a few days but the family and friends live it every day.
