I can't believe a 13 year old was driving. I hope the victim is ok. But the driver needs to get in serious trouble so she doesn't do it again and hurt someone even more.

Why weren't there some adults paying attention to a 13 year old driving off in a car?

the girl driving the car needs to spend sometime in an adult jail..she decided she was old enough to drive to school and kills a child one of her school mates..sad..The parents should be ticketed also for not controlling their child..Its sad why do some parents think its ok to not have a relationship with their kids...I grew up afraid of my parents in away..I would never scream at adults. RESPECT YOUR ELDERS KIDS...Thoughts and prayers to both families

Maddie, I'm going to miss you! You'll always be in our hearts, and your family is in our prayers.
"Love is stronger than death even though it can't stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can't separate people from love. It can't take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death."
I miss you Maddie, and I'll love you always.♥

Everyone, please wear pink tomorrow in honor of Maddie. It was her favorite color.

Good to know that some are honoring her... This little girl was a member of my family's church congregation... It's a tragic accident for both families. I'll be sure to wear pink as well going into work tomorrow!!

For me I can't even tell you how sad of a story I think this is. I can't even find the words to say how I fell for Madison and her family when she lost her life this morning. I'm wondering how the driver that caused this accident feels.? Can she even grasp on to what has happened here and does she care? The driver of the car will most likely will spend the next 8 years at the juvenile detention center. How sad. Teenagers as well with the rest of us need to know there are some very heavy consequences for our stupid decisions that we make.

Madison was a good friend of mine we might not have hung out after school alot or at all for that matter bu she was an amazing girl who was loved by everyone and will be truly missed! All i know is that school without Madison just wont be the same, she helped me through hard time in school and was always there for someone to talk to, now people will need someone else to talk to about how they feel about this horrible accident. Bless you Madison and you family. Now all of you that knew her lets just be srong, we all know its what she would have wanted she was an amaxing person! I LOVE YOU MADISON!!!! I will miss you so much you were a great friend!

Releasing the girl to her mother is pretty stupid. Why wasn't her mother paying attention when her 13 year old daughter drove off in the car? Maybe Mommy Dearest needs some culpability in this tragedy and maybe a little jail time as well.

Guys, I know the girl who did it, and she feels HORRIBLE! We need to show her and her family support too. Think if you were in her shoes? She has to live with this for the rest of her life. Think about how she feels too.
Maddie, I'm going to miss you. I hope you like the flowers I put on your memorial. I'll always remember you!
