A second teenage girl has reportedly died as a result of injuries sustained during a hit-and-run on Sunday evening in Kennesaw.

According to WSB TV, 16-year-old Juliana Ferrell, died early Friday afternoon. The Sprayberry High School student was one of three teenage girls who were hit by a vehicle while they were walking on a sidewalk along Barrett Lakes Boulevard.

Reina As-Salaam, 15, of East Point, was hit and died at the scene. A third girl, Monica Epps, 16, also a Sprayberry student, suffered several broken bones.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the accident that happened around 7:20 p.m. Authorities believe the accident occurred as a result of a chase between two men, Tansu Kanlica and Garrett Anderson, operating separate vehicles.

Kanlica reportedly worked for a locksmith and was called to unlock Anderson's car. After his vehicle was opened, Anderson sped off without paying and Kanlica pursued. According to warrants, during the chase, Anderson stopped suddenly, which contributed in Kanlica's vehicle being sent out-of-control and into the girls.

Kanlica of Atlanta, has been charged with homicide by vehicle in the first degree, hit and run resulting in serious injury, two counts of serious injury by vehicle, and failure to maintain lane and reckless driving. He is being held without bond in the Cobb County jail.

Anderson, of Kennesaw, is charged with homicide by vehicle in the first degree, two counts of serious injury by vehicle, theft of services and reckless driving. Like Kanlica, he is also being held without bond.

This story is just so sad all around. Huge consequences for one foolish act. I feel for all 5 families involved.

Both these guys need to get the death penalty. They are both terminally stupid and incurable and I frankly dont feel like feeding their sorry behinds for the rest of their miserable lives.
