lost a friend

Here is the release from the local paper

Zanesville teen killed in head-on collision

TR Staff Reports


ZANESVILLE -- An 18-year-old Zanesville girl was killed in a head-on collision Tuesday afternoon.

The girl, Katie Jenkins, was pronounced dead at Good Samaritan Hospital hospital, said Ohio Highway Patrol Zanesville post Trooper Matt Boyd.

Jenkins was driving her 1994 Geo Metro north on Pinkerton Road between New Coopermill Road and Old Coopermill Road in Zanesville just before 4 p.m. Tuesday,. A 1987 Ford Van driven by Raymond Dodson, 61, of Zanesville, was driving south on Pinkerton Road.

Jenkins crested a hill on that road and was driving left of center, hitting Dodson's vehicle head-on, Boyd said. Dodson was not injured.

Both Dodson and Jenkins, who was a resident of Pinkerton Road, were wearing seat belts. Alcohol is not considered to be a factor, Boyd said.

No citations were issued.

Katie is the second friend I have lost do to wrecks. neither had anything to do with speed, drugs, or aclohol. Ryan Church.. the star quarter back was killed, do to massive head trama,in october of 01 he wasnt wearing a seat belt and was ejected when the driver.. also a friend fo mine, fell asleep at the wheel and rolled the truck. Katie on the other hand had her seat belt on, not sure the actual cuase of death but I think internal injuries more in likiley

Callin hours are tommorrow funeral is saturday.. so ill be gone both those days. We were told today at school, that katie and ryan (who we lost in 01) will be prom king and queen. She was a very pretty girl, and it is such a shame to have lost her, she brought a smile onto everyones face. She would could make the least little thing into a realyl big story, which got her the nick name of the "drama queen"... One of her teachers miss stotts.. once said to her "When you graduate as you walk across the stage I'm going to play Mary J. Blidge's "No More Drama" and Katie replied "Oh Miss Stotts I'll always have drama."..... Tuesday we very sadly lost that drama...

She was due to leave for newyork with the choir at 4:30 yesterday morning.... She had always wanted to perform in New York.... that trip never came... Katie was and will always be a performer.

I hope shes up there in heaven tossin some footballs with our starting quarterback Ryan Church we lost in 01.

Heavens QB, and Gods drama queen...together again

Re: lost a friend

Sorry to hear about your loss. I'm 20 years old and fortunately have not lost any of my close friends. But have lost many friends to auto accidents. When i was in school we believed there was some kind of curse on the senior class, every year at least one senior would die in a car crash. It has not failed yet, scary.

Well just thought i would share with ya, stick in there man.

I can tell just by looking into her eyes that she was definately something special. Sorry dude, losing friends is never easy, especially the sweet female ones.
