Please keep Traveler Rest Family in your Prayers, 19 year old killed in accident.

Real Estate Agent with Realty One Group Freedom 747001988

Last week Travelers Rest lost a 19 year old to a traffic accident. Chelsea Hawkins graduated from Travelers Rest High in 08 and had just started college on scholarship for softball.  Last Sunday morning at 4 am she lost control of her car flip over and was thrown from her car, then was struck by a hit and run driver.  The police dept is looking for a white Jeep that hit her and left.  The family and kids in the area have done all they can to get attention to the traffic scene>  There is a big billboard asking for information about the hit and run driver. Student's painted messages on the road where she was killed and fresh flowers are always left.  This child died with such a wonderful future, please keep her family and friends  in your prayers.  I hope whoever hit Chelsea will have enough nerve to turm themselfs in, they think that she was already dead before the jeep hit her, and whoever hit her did not cause the accident. If they had stopped they would have not been in trouble, I have to thinkthey would have know they hit her, by now with all the news someone would have a clue about the white jeep, please pray for this person to while the community morns.  Please always wear your seat belt, accidents happen within miles of your home, and kids and adults alike think that you can't get hurt minutes from home.

Kathy, I actually had NOT heard about that and I live up here! My heart breaks for the family. Let's hope God had his reasons for allowing this and has important things for her in heaven. I pray the family has peace. Where did this happen?

Growing up in the City of New York we use mass transportation. One of my friends died in a car accident. It was so rare. When we moved to Atlanta I learned that this was an all to common occurance with tragic consequences. I will say a prayer for this family.

This is so sad. I am always preaching to my kids, neices, and nephews about the importance of the seat belt and driving safely. A young life gone. Everytime I see the Allstate Insurance commercial regarding teenage driving, it brings tears to my eyes.

I will keep her family in the prayers of my family. "Got Hope? God will provide. Have Faith? You will never be lead astray."
