That was my daughter that was killed she was only 12 yr old. She was staying the night at a friends house that night. From what I understand she was crossing with 2 other 12 yr old's going to the store, That night. I can't believe the other two has told the officer that they have done this other time before. Where is the supervision that night is my Question for the Grandfather that we left our child in his care??????.

My husband and I drove by this incident just moments after it occurred--the police hadn't even arrived, yet. We speculated that the woman must have been hit by the vehicle in the left lane because there were no signs of a vehicular crash. This poor woman was hit so hard she was missing the shoe and sock from one of her feet. This is so sad...what in God's name is a person doing crossing an interstate highway in that kind of darkness? So very sad...

Here NV4 uses "allegedly" yet, they don't bother when it is a person arrested or suspected; this is a constitutionally-protected provision that most media observe. && in this 'report" NV4 (as usual) parrots "authorities", NHP doesn't even use 'allegedly'. i'm all, Like, lookitup!
