    What a crappy weekend. My 17 year old niece :angel: was killed in Walnut Mississippi after she was involved in a fender bender. She survived that and when she got out of her car and got down in the grass area. A car doing 70 swirved to miss her car and struck her. She never saw what hit her and was killed instantly. She was my sisters only child.

    Say a prayer for my sister guys. She could really use it..

    the bad thing here is that 2 lifes have been ruined. The girl who hit here left the scene. So after they caught her they charged her with all kinds of stuff. Because she left they have thrown the book at her. If charged with everything she'll get 10 years. Not to mention she was a 24 year old black lady who killed a 17 year old white girl in Mississippi.

    Personally, I would not charge the lady with anything other than leaving the scene. Regardless if she stopped or not Amber would still be gone.

    I'm sorry to hear that........this is terrible.

    People should be accountable so I differ with you on what the other girl should be charged with.

    My sister in law lost her son 3 years ago to a car wreck. This is gonna be extremely tough for quite a long time. Give her all the love and support she needs.

    Again.......this is terrible.
