YOUNGSTOWN

A speeding stolen car being chased by police hit and broke the corner of a church retaining wall, went airborne for 105 feet across the church lawn and crashed into the Wick Avenue landmark church early Sunday morning, killing its young female driver.

A written police report put the speed of the car at more than 50 mph, but Rye Dalton, treasurer of First Presbyterian Church, 201 Wick Ave., which the car hit, said police at the scene estimated the speed of the car at 80 to 100 mph.

The Mahoning County Coroner’s Office identified the driver, who was extricated from the wreckage by the fire department, as Satavia Douglass, 19, of Southern Boulevard, but no official cause of death or ruling was available Sunday evening. Dr. Joseph Ohr, forensic pathologist and deputy coroner, was to perform the autopsy today.

@streetwise...No it is not a shame, it's called Karma! It is better that she be taken out now before she gunned down you or I. I am certainly sad to see young people die, such as those marine recruits in leavittsburg, but this story gets no sympothy from me. White or black, it doesn't matter.

Another AA Hoodrat dead in Youngstown. Slowly, but surely they are killing themselves off. The criminal record at 19 speaks for itself. The level of criminal acts only keeps growing from Walmart theft to stealing a car till ultimately some poor old person gets shot dead in a church parking lot. Better she die now then the old person in the church parking lot later.

I have been to the slums mauzy006 . This girl lived not far from St. Dominics Church . I know the area very well . I tried to generate jobs in the city during days gone by . City Hall back then could care less . Do they really care today ? Read the news and judge for yourself . Unless jobs are generated to keep the young off the streets the carnage will continue . Welfare only keeps the people dependant and lacking any ambition to be productive .
