FOREST HILL, Md. (WMAR) - Final arrangements have been made for an 18-year-old woman that was killed in a fiery crash earlier this week.
Hannah Mackensie Kriss died on Tuesday due to injuries sustained in the crash.
Police say Kriss sideswiped one car on Route 152 before hitting another head-on. She died on the scene.
Family spokesperson Beto Sanchez says Hannah was a 2012 graduate of The John Carroll School in Bel Air and was an avid cheerleader and dancer. She even coached cheer at VIP Athletics 4 to 6 days a week for children ages 3 to 6. She had planned to start coaching dance next month.
Hannah was known for her cheering and dancing and competed in at least 11 different states all across the country. Some competitions had more than 10,000 people in attendance and Sanchez says Hannah was always the leader of the pack and never messed up and flourished in the sport.
Sanchez says Hannah had a strong work ethic that was instilled in her at a young age. Her two surviving brothers and one sister have the same hard-working mentality.
Hannah was also known among her friends as selfless. She never put herself first, it was always someone else. Hannah was also known for her winning smile.
Hannah's family has received condolences from those who loved to watch her dance from places as far away as Florida, Ohio and New York.
A memorial mass will be held on Saturday, August 18 at 9:30 a.m. at St. Margaret Catholic Church, 141 N. Hickory St., Bel Air.
