    None of us can feel the degree of pain these families are going through, we can only imagine……..they need prayers, family and friends…….God be with them…..

    A very sad situation for the families! Such a tragedy! The guy that hit them should not have run…but we can’t just assume he was drunk either. Maybe if he had stopped and called 911 she might have had a chance of survival. My prayers go out the the families.

    the guy who turned himself in late afternoon was probally drunk and had to sober up before turning himself in..too many of our younge friends are gone. this needs to stop! even though i didnt know her personally some of my friends did and 16 yrs ago my 14 yr old good friend was killed by a hit and run..this needs to end!

    John, your comment is mind numbingly stupid. Google prohibition. You might learn a little. Maybe you will say how many MORE problems were caused by “banning” alcohol.
    It’s very very sad she was killed.

    I read on another page that the street was Redfox Drive

  6. mike says:

    wow, what’s the big cover ? no street name or type of vehicle possible?they knew they were walking home not beat to death?

  7. John says:

    wow that person died on new years too. We seriously need to ban alcohol, enough is enough

    1. zep says:

      no, we don’t need to ban alcohol. the vast majority of people drink responsibly.

      obviously you know nothing of history… prohibition was a collosal failure.
