SOUTHFIELD (WWJ) – Counselors are being brought to Bradford Academy in Southfield for classmates of a 14-year-old girl who was killed after school Wednesday.
Shammah Hebron was trying to cross Telegraph Road, between 9 Mile and 10 Mile roads, when she was struck by two vehicles and killed. Police say the teen had crossed the road once to get to a Burger King restaurant and was struck on her return.
Bradford Academy principal Cheryl Paul said Hebron was a freshman at the school.
“She was an amazing young student; brand new to us,” Paul said. “We only knew her for about seven days, but she had an amazing impact on changing the lives of our school and our student population.”
Both drivers stopped at the scene and cooperated with officers. One of them, who was clearly distraught, told WWJ’s Sandra McNeill that he could not avoid hitting the girl.
