A young girl died in Houston County on November 16, 2012, after being hit by a car as she walked along the side of the road.
Ashley Marie Mahanay, 12, of Crockett, was walking westward on FM 132 just south of Highway 7 at approximately 4:45 in the afternoon. Wanda Cook Saliagas, also of Crockett, was also heading west on the road in a 2009 Toyota Corolla.
Saliagas said the sunlight temporarily blinded her and she did not see the girl walking along the road. Mahanay died at the scene.
The Texas personal injury lawyers and staff at the office of Attorney Steve Lee extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Ashley Mahanay.
