ROCK HILL, S.C. — We’re bringing you a story with more on the life of 15-year-old Ashton Dickey whose life was cut short after a drunk driver struck and killed her on McConnells Highway last July.
She and her friend were killed when another car crossed the center lane and hit them head-on. The driver was said to be under the influence at the time of the crash.
Ashton loved her school – St. Anne’s Catholic School – so, her friends and family decided to dedicate a scholarship in her name.
In the video above, CN2’s Sarah Obeid tells us how Ashton’s loved ones worked together to create the Ashton Dickey Memorial Scholarship.
They recently held a ceremony to announce the scholarship and retire her soccer jersey.
The family wants others to be aware of the consequences of drinking and driving so an incident like Ashton’s can be avoided.
