A Richmond teenager has died after a car slammed into her bike.

Around 4:00pm Wednesday, police say two teenagers tried to cross the Eastern Bypass in front of Wal-Mart, when a car slammed into them.

15-year-old Maggie Cole suffered serious head injuries. She was flown to the University of Kentucky Hospital, where she died around one Thursday morning.

The boy who was on the bike with her only had minor injuries.

Witnesses say the teens rode out in front of the car. No charges have been filed against the 87 year old driver, Peter Lovino. Police say they are still investigating.

    Me and Maggie were close in middle school. It was really hard loosing her. Me and my friend, April, were supposed to hang out with her the day she died. My heart broke when I heard her name come from the tv. I have never felt like that before. I remember seeing her shoe on the screen when I ran in the living room. It was so hard. We left a seat open for her at 8th grade recognition. We planted a tree in honor of Maggie outside Madison Middle School. We did a lot of things to remember Maggie. I miss you girl. And I can't wait to see you again when my time comes. I love you baby girl.
