stupid headline; "...killed by car.." Cars don't kill people kill with cars.

I thought pedestrians had the right of way always...

But what was she doing 8 miles from home, by herself, at 11:15 p.m. crossing a dark street? Why was she alone?

My condolences goes out to her family and friends our family also lost a love one after a night of drinking just this past may 18 she was only 16 years old with a promising life ahead of her. We still dont know exactly what took our precious ashleys life until the toxicology test are completed but we are almost sure that energy drinks and alcohol had a factor in her death. Everyday we struggle to breathe in and out since ashley has been gone but we know with the grace of god we will get throught this our prayers goes out to her family and friends because we know what it is for something so tragic to happen, it just dosent make sense

I would blame the driver. He's guilty till proven innocent.

her family could not be reached until Monday? was she crossing at an intersection or in the middle of the street? all by herself at that hour? very sad. Good thing the driver at least stopped like he should. If the driver had been a boozer he would have kept on going and they'd never know what happened. I have boozers racing by my house on my side street all night long - one just knocked down the road markers two days ago - what's with this booze epidemic? How do your people socialize in other countries? Is booze the only way to gather and connect with people socially? We've got to get it together in this country - there is no future in this. just heartbreak and ruin.
