She worked at the pizza place that i worked at place is called Ats a nice pizza. I guess the police report said she was hit by a kid in a eclipse going 65 mph and she died in the ambulance from cardiac arrest. She was a very nice girl from when i talked to her. My sympathy goes out to her family. RIP

The Trib will not print the rest of the story until the LEGAL investigation regarding the crash is complete...whenever there are circumstances that lead to a possible investigation where charges may be filed, the papers/news media usually respect the boundary that the police have to make in releasing information. This is to prevent contamination of a case....
You are shooting the messenger here who is following accepted protocol....
If this was your daughter, wouldn't you want the police to be allowed to investigate uninhibited by news leaks, so IF there was someone at fault, ie a drunk driver, or manufacturer of a car, they could be prosected without the case being thrown out due to wrong information/jaded information being given? We do like to avoid mistrials, ya know?

How would you know what the police report said? The investigation is not even complete they wont even release information to the families. People need to get there stories straight. He was not going 65 and she pulled out in front of him she didnt see oncoming traffic. Like I said before it is a very sad an unfortunate accident

CAUSE and EFFECT:

CAUSE: She turned left in front of another car.
EFFECT: She was hit by the other car.

It was an accident, but there is always something/someone that CAUSED the accident. I don't believe anyone has suggested anything was done on purpose.

May Christina rest in peace and my condolences to her family and friends.

so sad for everyone involved.
I am sure the boy that hit her is grieving also.
I live on 135th, EVERYONE speeds{besides the old guy who owns 7-11, he goes about 20 under the speed limit}
I can sit in my front yard and watch at least 2 cars a hour that blow thru the stop sign at 135th & macon.
This is a very unfortunate ACCIDENT.
It could of been anyone of our children who was killed.That is the sad realtity when we have teens who grow up and venture into real life.
Christina's family will be in my thoughts and prayers, as well as the other person involved in the accident.
