In Queens, a 14-year-old girl was ki!!ed when her car cr@shed into the back of a parked UPS truck, throwing her from the vehicle. The motives of a 16-year-old boy and another underage passenger are under investigation by the police. According to the NYPD, he was allegedly speeding while holding a Learner’s Permit.
“As a mother, a mother don’t want to go through this. I found her bracelet I can’t sleep. I come to get her. I come to get my daughter,” said Keisha Francis, the victim’s mother.
On Thursday morning, Francis frantically looked among the shards of glass for a remembrance of her daughter, Fortune Williams, 14. After the terr!ble acc!dent, nothing was left but a bracelet.
“I have three children and she showed me more love than anything else. At night I have to cuddle with Fortune, I couldn’t sleep last night. I can’t live without my daughter,” Francis said.
Francis and the victim’s aunt could not withstand the crushing weight of grief at Thursday night’s memorial. A sea of purple overflowed into the street as family and friends attended in such large numbers that the New York Police Department was called to help regulate traffic.

The next day, police with a speed trap in place reported that the young driver was exceedingly fast. The driver of the BMW was unharmed, but Fortune was ejected. She attended high school in Springfield Gardens and aimed to become a doctor. Her mother will never get over the loss of her daughter.
“My life will never be the same without Fortune. Fortune is a sweetheart. She’s a loving, caring child,” Francis said.
Her mother claims her daughter worked two jobs the night of the accident. Fortune was at home with her big sister but sneaked out to spend time in her pal’s vehicle. She left without ever returning. The 16-year-old driver has been hospitalized and is doing well at Cohen Children’s Medical Center.
