16-Year-Old Girl Killed Easter Morning When Drunk Driver Crashes Into Her Bedroom

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadTeensAlcohol

A 16 year old girl was killed on Easter morning when a drunk driver smashed through her apartment and into her bedroom, crushing her.

Just awful.

Giselle Mendoza, a 16-year-old high school sophomore, was killed on an Easter morning in Palmdale, CA.

She was sleeping in her bed when an SUV crashed through her building and into her room, crushing her to death.

Her 20-year-old neighbor, Roberto Rodriguez, was driving the vehicle, his blood alcohol level almost twice the legal limit!

He's been arrested and is currently out on $100,000 bail.

An eyewitness on the scene said:

"I saw a car coming down 10th, east, about 80-85 mph, and it didn't stop or hesitate. Just right into the building. Boom."

That's so fast, of course the vehicle went straight through the wall.

The worst part about all of this was Giselle wasn't killed on impact as some previously thought. The witness continued:

"You would hear her moaning, kind of, inside the wall."

That's so heartbreakingly awful!! A young life, taken away, all because someone made the decision to drink and drive. The SUV was going so fast it actually crashed into a second bedroom of another teen girl.

Luckily that 14-year-old girl just happened to sleep on the couch the night of the accident, otherwise, she'd have been dead too.

Even through all her grief, Giselle's older sister spoke to the media, saying:

"I just want… all the people who drink and drive to stop doing it. It's just causing pain for families. They are losing their family members."

We can't even begin to imagine what they're going through. We wish them peace and serenity.

Our heart goes out to Giselle's family and friends.

    I hope that fucking drunk spic, or whatever he is, rotts in fucking hell an gets rapped every day in prison. I hate that she was still alive and suffered. I hate knowing that. I feel rage and wish him nothing but pain and suffering for the rest of his worthless life. I hope her family can find peace soon.

    These drunk drivers, murders, and pedophiles need to stay in jail, non violent offenders need an ankle bracelet and stay at home to make room for these people since the jails are full, and not be able to bail themselves out.

    Why are people so stupid to get behind the wheel what an IDOIT, also MGFunk why make a racial remark do not people of all races get drunk and drive I believe so. So maybe you should of just left it at "fucking drunk" especially since the victim is of hispanic back ground as well. I hope that the driver does not get off in anyway, I hope that Giselle's family is getting all the support and more that they need what a horrible thing to happen to a life so young my heart goes out to Mendoza Family and friends.

    There is incorrect information in this story. I live across the street from where this happened. The girl died instantly. There was no screaming, crying, moaning or anything else. While it is sad she died, there is no reason to make it sound like she suffered. She never knew what hit her. Its already been shown that she was killed on impact. The guy who hit her lives across the street from her. The entire incident is unfortunate. Many people in our town complain about DUI checkpoints and say they are a waste of time and money because "catching a few drunk drivers wont make a difference". Well this was 1 drunk driver and it made all the difference in the world. Maybe he would have been caught had citizens not complained so much about catching DUI drivers.
