A 14-year-old Kenosha girl was killed in a motor vehicle accident as she was walking along a street Thursday night. The girl was walking with a friend in the dark when a Honda Accord struck the girl who was traveling on the "paved and traveled" part of the road. The two girls were walking westbound on County Highway N when the Honda came up from behind them, also traveling westbound. The 42-year-old female driver of the Honda said that when she came to the top of a hill she saw the two girls walking and tried to avoid them but it was too late.
The woman voluntarily submitted a blood sample to test for impairments, but authorities believe that she was not driving impaired. No names have been released to the public yet and the incident is still undergoing an investigation.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of all those involved in this tragic accident.
