Girl, 17, killed after SUV crashed into house while she attended online school

A 17 year-old girl died after a car crashed into her house and hit her while she was attending virtual school lessons. Aramis Mora was killed after the silver SUV flew off the road and slammed into her home in Greenville, Texas, on Monday.

The unidentified driver is said to have suffered an unspecified medical emergency shortly before the smash, and was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries. Aramis’s brother Gustavo heard the crash from the next room, and rushed in to find his sister’s body.

He said: ‘And when I found her, I checked her heartbeat. She wasn’t breathing any more.’ Paying tribute to his sister, Gustavo added: ‘She was hardworking. She was really, really smart. She was in the honor society.’

Aramis’s sister Thelma is also distraught by her sibling’s shocking death, saying: ‘She was so talented. I still can’t believe this is happening.’

Greenville Independent School district, whose schools Aramis had attended since kindergarten, paid a heartfelt tribute to their former student, according to CBS11.

A spokesman said: ‘She was known for her sweet, calm spirit and for being an excellent student with a special interest in art and fashion design. 

‘Our prayers go out to Aramis, her family, and all those who love her. We will all miss this special young woman.

Police continue to investigate Aramis’s death, but have yet to say whether potential criminal charges are on the horizon.
