Authorities said McDonald was a passenger in the back seat when she was killed. Officials said she was not wearing a seat belt.  Two other people in the car were not hurt.

The other car involved in the crash is still parked on the street and was heavily damaged in the back.

Channel 11 talked to a neighbor who said the parked car belongs to his stepdaughter and she bought it five days ago.

He said cars go way too fast on this street.

"This road is only supposed to be 25 mph. People fly down this road all the time," the man said.
