C. Florida Teen Killed Sitting in Road After Argument With Mom, Friends

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 told WESH, the Orlando NBC affiliate, that 13-year-old Trinity Bachmann was angry about who would get to sit in the front seat as her mother drove her home from the Central Florida Fair in Orlando on Saturday night.

Police said Trinity and other children had been at the Central Florida Fair for a Future Farmers of America program. Trinity was preparing to show her pig, Robin.

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.

The driver, Mackenzie Miller, said on Monday that she had no comment on the crash. She was tested for impairment. The results are pending, according to reports.

Authorities are investigating the crash.
