TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)-- Students and teachers are mourning the loss of a student killed on a Leon County road, and at this time, the driver won't be facing any charges.

Seventeen year old Moriah Christy died Monday morning after being critically injured. Christy was a junior at Lincoln High School.

The principal at the school, Allen Birch, remembers her as a wonderful student and a great contributor to the choral department.

Birch says the Lincoln High community is keeping Christy's family and friends in their thoughts and prayers.

Troopers were back out at the scene Tuesday.  Troopers say Christy and 16-year-old Jordan Doyle, were hit while they were walking side-by-side on Country Road 1543 near the white line on the east shoulder of the road Saturday night.

Troopers say it was dark outside and the driver, 31-year-old Kristin Strauss, couldn't see them.

Doyle was treated and released from the hospital.

Troopers say there is not evidence at this time that would warrant charges on the driver.
