The Honda was occupied by three teenagers who had been arguing with a resident in the neighborhood. They sped away from the scene, which is when the Honda suddenly jumped a curb and hit the two pedestrians.
Originally, Julie Johnson was admitted to intensive care but then later passed away due to her injuries. Jayme was identified as her daughter-in-law. She was hospitalized with serious injuries but released from the hospital on Thursday afternoon.
