A young Haitian-American woman was struck and killed by a vehicle as she walked along Brush Hill Road in Milton on Tuesday. The victim, 18 year-old Katelisa Etienne, was a senior at Milton High School. The Patriot Ledger reports that the driver of the Jeep that struck Etienne is a Boston Police officer from Hyde Park. The newspaper reports that no charges have been filed at this point.
A memorial fund for the young woman has been set up online. The organizers of the memorial page say that Etienne was due to graduate from Milton Hill this year and planned to attend Curry College in the fall. The fund has already raised more than $5,000 in donations.
