Cayden Turner was full of life and had a smile that could light up a room.
CINCINNATI — Cayden Turner was full of life and had a smile that could light up a room.
“She was my angel here,” her mother, S’keisha Rembert-Wilkerson, said. “Now, she’s more of an angelic angel.”
Last Wednesday, the unthinkable happened — Turner died. She and another student were crossing Jefferson Ave. in a marked crosswalk when they were hit by a car.
According to police, a suspected stolen 2014 Honda CR-V ran through a stoplight and struck the girls. The car sped off, crashed into a tree, and the driver fled.
Both victims were taken to the hospital with serious injuries. One girl was treated and released, but Turner died at the hospital.
“At least I can have comfort when I have my bad times that she’s living through someone else,” Rembert-Wilkerson, said.
