Reverend Jacqueline Bennett was coming out of the Rite-Aid and went to comfort the victim's friends.

"This poor little lady was coming to pick up her elderly friend only to find out that she was hit by a car with teenager driving it.  It's a very sad thing because the other senior citizens that go into the restaurant it could have been another person who got killed." Rev. Bennett says.
