    Why would you run away and leave your friend who was driving, failed to stop, hit the light pole and then the light pole fell on her, killing her? why not stay and try to help? Some friends. This happens a lot in Milwaukee, crash, run like hellfire is after you, leaving your “friends” behind. Always catch you sooner or later though. ALWAYS. Be smart and turn yourself in.

    What a bunch of dirtbags…”friends” leave you to die alone in the street, in the dark and cold. Can’t wait to hear their stories – parents must be proud!

      No they are NOT proud parents regarding t his incident! The entire family is currently working to locate her and to have her turn herself in!
      No one know why she ran, ESPECIALLY YOU! But, trust and believe that this is not something we are all smiling and laughing about! We feel the same way about her leaving the scene as anyone else does, especially with her leaving her friend behind! Also, I am quite positive that there are some things and decisions you or another family member have made in life that left your family awestruck and appalled as well. No matter what class anyone and their family is in, there is ALWAYS that ONE or TWO or MORE that simply do not make the best decisions.

If you have 3 kids, you’re not out at that time of night…..cry your tears, but I have no sympathy as the rest of society will be paying for this for years to come. Cruel? Yes! True? Yes!
