My daugher Rebecca was killed by a 28 year old male who was drunk and going about 120 miles per hour. He ran on foot and will not be charged with anything for CAUSING HER DEATH only with Failure to Stop and Render Aid. The max he could get is a $5000 fine and five years in jail or prison. Rebecca was in the passangers seat on the way to visit a friend when the vehicle she was in was hit from behind. The impact caused the gas tank to catch on fire. The entire inside of the car burned. The only part of Rebecca that was not burned was a two inch by five inch piece of her lower back. She was a beautiful 25 year old young lady who was looking forward to her first wedding anniversity and celebrating her 26th birthday with her twin sister which are both in June.
