    Well, was she drinking or texting?? Why did it take so long to find out who this was? How did her parents NOT know she was the driver or did they know and wait until they could talk to an attorney first? Just wondering?

      This girl goes to my high school and she is ranked in the top ten of the 11th grade. It is very, very highly unlikely that she was doing either of those things.

      It took so long to find out it was because she was scared. They didn’t have a clue who was driving. Out of guilt, she decided to turn herself in, albeit month later.

      Please, anyone who is reading this story: this was not your case of the usual bad teenager recklessly driving, she is a GOOD person, and I am livid that her NAME is being published to the public. That being said, I belive that as the public, we do have the right to know what happened, but I do not believe we have the right to know the name of the person, ESPECIALLY because she is a minor!

        Not recklessly driving?? Not sure what you would consider it. She was definitely driving reckless or she would not have hit those kids that were off the side of the road. A GOOD person would have stopped to see if they were okay, not leave them there not knowing if they were dead or alive. She should be charged as an adult & should be punished to the max. Makes me sick to think someone could just leave the scene after knowing that they hit something/someone!!
