Brooke Molnar was ejected from the SUV when it struck a telephone pole on Library Road. She has been receiving treatment for a fractured rib, internal bleeding in the spleen and a shoulder injury.

Snapchat videos from the night leading up to the deadly crash showed three of the woman drinking vodka in the SUV. They had left Pittsburgh’s South Side after a night of partying.

“I know everyone is going to pass their judgement, and rightfully so. They all got in the car, drinking and driving, knowing there’s a consequence that it could happen,” Brianne Molnar, Brooke Molnar’s sister, said. “But when alcohol is involved, you’re not in your right state of mind and you’re careless. And, unfortunately, everyone had to pay that price.”

Paige Smith's funeral will be held at Dave Henney Funeral Home in South Park In lieu of flowers, donations and monetary gifts can be made payable through PNC Bank to Adriana Redhawk, who is Paige's daughter. All funds will be used to help better Adriana's life and provide necessities for her.
