PORTLAND Ore. (KPTV) – A bus stop on Southeast Stark Street is now a memorial for 26-year-old Ashlee McGill.
“I barely try to do it. Take it minute by minute, not even day by day,” said her mother, Misty Nicholson.
Early Saturday morning, McGill was waiting for a bus home when Portland police said two drivers were running down Southeast Stark Street near 133rd Avenue. One of the drivers lost control, killing her instantly.
Nicholson is devastated and said drivers need to slow down.
“They don’t care whose life they endanger, whose life they take, they take away,” she said. “Obviously maybe after the fact they might think about it, but before it’s like they don’t care. It is not fair. Ashlee didn’t deserve it. She’s a nice girl, she’s my baby.
Now her family remembers McGill as a funny and generous mother who was taken too soon. It’s clear she was loved by many, as dozens of people came to her wake to pay their respects and share memories of her.
“She is brave, had a good personality, she would help anyone. No matter what they did to her, she would still go and help them,” Nicholson said.
Police said the driver was taken to hospital on Saturday and no arrests have been made.
