Girl struck crossing highway

More than 300 people attended a funeral service for a teenager who was hit by at least three cars on an Alberta highway on New Year's Day none of which stopped.

Police believe Brittany Bearspaw, 16, was trying to cross the Trans-Canada Highway about 60 kilometres west of Calgary when she was struck as she made her way home from a party at about 7 a.m.

Gospel music rang out on Saturday as her casket was carried into the gymnasium at a school in Morley, which is on the Stoney First Nation.

Gordon Brene, the principal of Morley Community School, was among those who spoke at the service.

He described Bearspaw as a friendly and energetic girl who had serious goals and was working hard to achieve them.

Brene urged other students to draw inspiration from Bearspaw's drive to succeed.

Two drivers who hit Bearspaw have contacted RCMP in nearby Cochrane, but investigators say they don't believe either vehicle killed her.

They said they have yet to find the driver of the vehicle that first hit Bearspaw, but still hope the person will come forward.

Police said no charges had been laid so far.
What a sad story. Unfortunately, she was breaking the law by crossing the highway and I can't think of anybody who would do such a thing. But at 16, eep. Tragic. They should teach kids these things in school and young, stay away from crossing highways.
