Funeral set for Garner teen hit and killed

Posted: Updated:

Funeral plans have been set for a Garner teen--killed earlier this week as she tried to make it to the bus stop.

Maria Fernandez Jimenez, just 14, was struck by an oncoming car as she crossed highway 50 Monday. Officers say she was trying to get to the school bus before it put out its stop arm or flashed its red lights. We are told her brother was just steps behind her.

A funeral will be held Tuesday April 2nd at St. Bernadette Catholic Church in Fuquay-Varina at 11:00 am, with a burial following at Wake Chapel Church Cemetery.
