An 18-year-old Starkville girl has died from injuries suffered in a Saturday night car accident, the Starkville Daily News reports.
Julia Rose Tkach, a senior at Starkville High School, was confirmed to have died on Sunday upon consultation with the coroner, said Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Brian Mobley on Sunday.
Tkach was driving her black 2002 Volkswagen Jett on Highway 389 about 6 miles north of Starkville shortly after 10 p.m. Saturday when the car veered off the road and struck a pine tree, Mobley said.
Mobley said the exact cause of the crash remains under investigation.
At least one memorial page for Tkach has been started on the social networking Web site Facebook. The page is titled “You were loved Julia Tkach!”
