Meet Jikaiah Stevens

j_lastOn September 26th 2013 Jikaiah Steven was hit by Wren Coe’s car as she ran a red light.
Wren’s car sent Jikaiah’s body flying 20 feet from the impact onto her head.

Jilkaiah was sent to the hospital for 11days where she struggled to regain her physical life back. After being released home she left the hospital with a nasty injury to her head and numerous other bodily aches and pains. Not to mention over 100k$ in bills owed to the hospital, the inability to work for the next 3 months and pay rent and on going doctor’s visits and medication which she still has to find the money to pay for.

Wren went home that day with the dent of jikaiah’s body on her car and nothing else. No traffic situation. Why was she not held responsible for this accident she was the sole caused of?
