15 Year old killed by drunk driver after car runs out of gas

Recently in Tampa, Florida, A 15 Year old girl was struck and killed by an impaired driver after the vehicle she was in ran out of gas on the Gandy Bridge.

A 20 year old man who was driving the 2008 Silver Infinity Q35 says the car ran out of gas while driving along the Gandy Bridge in Tampa Bay. After pulling over to the left shoulder, the driver told police he could see what looked to be a drunk driver swerving from side to side heading in his direction. He attempted to warn his passengers, a 15 year old girl, a 17 year old girl, and a 20 year old man. That’s when the 28 year old Sebastian Guiterrez crashed into them.

The 15 year old was pinned between the guardrail and the car and killed.
