APOPKA, Fla. (PIX11) — A 13-year-old girl was killed Saturday night when she was struck by a car as she sat in the road after an argument with her family.

Police told the Orlando Sentinel that Trinity Bachmann was angry about who would get to sit in the front seat for the ride home from a friend’s house.

It was reported that the girl’s 36-year-old Janice Pedroza had dropped off one of the friends before the argument broke out. Bachmann got out of the car and sat down on a dimly lit stretch of road. Her mother pleaded with her to get back in the car, but she refused. A passing car hit them, killing the teen and injuring her mother.

Police reportedly have not charge the driver of the car, but the 20-year-old’s blood was drawn after officers discovered an open container of Mike’s Hard Lemonade in the center console of her car.

Police described her as having glassy and bloodshot eyes and smelling as though she had been drinking.

The crash is still under investigation.
