APOPKA, Fla. – Police say a car fatally struck a 13-year-old central Florida girl who was sitting in the road after arguing with her mother and friends.
Apopka police Capt. Randy Fernandez told the Orlando Sentinel that 13-year-old Trinity Bachmann was angry about who would get to sit in the front seat as her mother drove home from the Central Florida Fair in Orlando on Saturday night.
Police say 36-year-old Janice Pedroza had dropped off one of the friends before the argument broke out. Bachmann got out of the car and sat down on a dimly lit stretch of road. Her mother pleaded with her to get back in the car, but she refused. A passing car hit them, killing the teen and injuring her mother.
Authorities are investigating the crash.
