Woman Walking on Highway 41 Was Hit Twice, Killed

Georgia State Patrol troopers say a dark blue passenger vehicle and a second car hit the Cartersville woman at Highway 41's intersection with Mac Johnson Road.

A woman who was walking along Highway 41 on a rainy night in Cartersville was twice struck by cars and killed, Georgia State Patrol spokesman Franka Young said.

Christina Mae Warner, 27, of Cartersville, died at the scene of the incident, which happened Tuesday shortly after midnight.

The driver of the second car to hit the pedestrian stopped and notified authorities, but the first vehicle to hit Warner, in the right lane, did not stop and left the scene, Young said.

The second driver described the hit-and-run car as a dark blue passenger vehicle. GSP's investigation continues.

no, simply repeating what I was told. And some I saw. Yes I do blame the army. If she had got the help she needed instead of harrassed she wouldn't have gotten discharged so soon. My intention was not to defame her by any means. I offer my condolences to her family and am very sorry for your loss. She was a good person but highly depressed about her situation and felt your family deserved an explanation maybe they can track it back and see if there are some benefits for her children. I do not know. I promise there was no intention of defaming her and yes most is heresay. Her good friend told me she jumped off the building. as little as she is the rails are high you have to stand on the side rails to fall off. You can't just fall. Either or I am not trying to get into your business as I am very sorry for your loss she made a wonderful impression as a mom, a soldier and a friend. She is not a bad person.

I want to say thank you to everyone for their condolences. To others, I would like to say this: If this were your family member, how would you like these things being said? It hasn't been verified by a reliable source but your family member jumped off a balcony? To read some of these comments makes my heart sink. As her sister, I don't believe she would have jumped. Until some one with a badge tells me she did, I know she didn't. If you don't want to defame her name, then keep your mouth shut and your comments to yourself. You may know her or had worked with her but let someone post something like this on the internet about your family and you would be upset too. If you think we need to know something so badly, find us on Facebook and private message us. We just want her to come back home. We want to hear her laughter. That will never happen. Thanks again for your condolences. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!!

I didn't know this woman but as the mother of a soldier myself, I would like to thank her AND her family for her military service and their associated sacrifices. I would also like to extend my condolences to her family, especially her children. No one should have to grow up without a mother. The circumstances of her death are horrible. I'm sure neither her family nor the people in the second care will ever be able to fully recover from those images. For that, I wish you all peace. If there is ANYTHING that we could take from this, its the reminder to wear-light colored clothing &/or carry a flashlight anytime - rain or not - that we're going to be near a roadway after dark. I AM NOT saying or implying any of this was her fault - just if this tragedy helps save someone else, her death will not have been in vain. Again, my thoughts and prayers are with her family!
