According to another story the girl committed suicide. Here's the other story:

"VICTORVILLE - A 14-year-old girl who threatened to commit suicide stood in the middle of the 15 Freeway early Tuesday until a semi tractor-trailer hit and killed her, authorities said.

Crystal Pasalis of Adelanto ran from her home around midnight, climbed a wall onto the freeway and darted across several lanes before stopping in a northbound lane, California Highway Patrol officers said.

Just south of Mojave Drive, a New Mexico truck driver swerved to avoid the girl but the side of the truck hit her, authorities said.

The girl died at the scene. The truck driver was not injured."

This is so sad, what could have driven this girl to do this? It's just a terrible tragedy for her family and the poor truck driver that hit her. That will stay with him forever.

Her name is Crystal Pasillas and he was my niece. She was a beautiful girl who has a bright future ahead of her. I know that it was not the truck driver's fault and i am so sorry that this happened to him. Crystal was not brought up in the most loving of environments, her mother is currently in jail and has been in and out since she was born. My sister and brother in law made many attempt to bring her to their house in Rialto, but she refused. I hurts because she stayed with them this pasted weekend i spoke to her for the last time on Sunday evening. As many know, there is more to the story than what was printed in the newspaper. There are many more factors involved than "why was this girl walking on the freeway". What i don't understand is why she didn't pick up the phone and call us to come get her. I am completely mortified that she felt so alone in the world that she felt this was her only way out.
Although i know you can't hear me, I love you, Crystal. You will be in my heart and in my thoughts always. I will always remember your beautiful smile, and the cute little giggle that used to make us all laugh. Clau told me that you began your report on Susan B. Anthony as soon as I left and that you were excited to go back to school. I am sorry that i could not do more for you before this tragedy. I am truly sorry Crystal that my efforts came too little too late.

Hello Rosie,
I hope you can read this. I am very sorry for your family's loss. I only met Crystal a few times when she came with Claudia to my mom's house. Very sweet and beautiful girl. I know how much your family loved her. And I will keep Crystal and your family in my prayers.
Respectfully,

It really crushes me that I will never be able to see her again. We had a lot of fun on the weekend when she came to visit us. At least I got to spend time with her and had time to tell her how much I loved her. She will always be in my heart and my thoughts.

I really can't believe this.
I met this chick by her sister Angela
awhile back ago when we where cool.
And we was in middle school.
When we use to chill mostly every night at her house just myspacin it.
She always meet me half way with her sis even though I lives two blocks away.
Up to this point I'd rather been closer to both and still talk to 'em.
Yesterday when I was wondering off here on myspace I read this chick display name that I use to hang out with too.
It said R.I.P CRYSTAL PASILLAS we all miss you.
At that moment I started looking for Crystal profile and when I came across from it I couldn't believe it.
I started asking soo many people I use to talk to just to find out and make sure.
This hit me badly because this girl was just really 14 yers old and was about to go to High school.
I know how lifw was with her when I knew you really good.
I know how this family is feeling and going through.
p.S
My prays go out to the family.
And people need to stop asking why she did this and everything that sounds like a joke.
Its not funny and no one is laughin about your stupid comments...
