Canton, MI (WXYZ) - "We don't blame you", are the words Andrea Beavers and Angel Blake, sisters of a 19-year-old killed in a crash in Canton Tuesday, want the driver believed to be responsible to know.
Danielle Beavers and her best friend Brooke Kennedy, 18, were killed early Tuesday morning when a friend who was driving them home apparently failed to stop a flashing red light.
They were traveling south on Canton Center Road and were hit by a car traveling east on Michigan Avenue. The driver going east had a flashing yellow light.
The teens were being driven home by a 24-year-old friend who worked with them at Ruby Tuesdays in Canton.
He was hospitalized but survived the crash. And his family tells 7 Action News that he's "distraught."
Both teens were 2011 graduates of Belleville High School.
Grief counseling has been set up by Van Buren Public Schools.
Services are available at the Administration Building located at 555 W. Columbia on Wednesday and Thursday between 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm on a walk-in basis.
The funeral for Danielle Beavers will take place Friday at the Harry J Will Funeral home located at 34567 Michigan Avenue in the city of Wayne. Visitation will run from noon to 4:00 p.m. Her funeral will immediately follow at 4:00.
We're told Danielle's parents are both on disability and relatives have set up the following fund for donations to help cover funeral costs:
"The Danielle Beavers Memorial Fund",
Genisys Credit Union 2820 Tyler Rd., Ypsilanti, MI 48198.
Danielle's family would like to extend a special thank you to Canton Police for their compassion and kindness, especially Sgt. Dave Schreiner and Det. Tim Wright.
The investigation is continuing and, so far, no citations have been issued.
