According to the Review Journal, a crowd gathered in remembrance of the 14-year-old girl who was fatally hit by a pick-up truck on November 9. The truck hit a group of three pedestrians, but the other two victims survived. The teen’s vigil, located at the intersection of Blue Diamond and Cimarron Roads, was cut short by a three-car collision at the same intersection where the pedestrian was killed.
A southbound Toyota on Cimarron Road collided with an eastbound pick-up truck on Blue Diamond Road. The force of the t-bone collision propelled both cars into a stationary Chevy SUV waiting for the light to change. The passengers in the pick-up truck and SUV were unscathed; however, all of the passengers inside the Toyota were injured and sent to the hospital. One seriously injured youth inside the Toyota was partially stuck inside the automobile because of the damage to the side of the vehicle. After some effort, emergency crews freed the youth.
