Mother of slain teen makes request

Tuesday, August 12, 2003

Kellyn Andrews' mother is afraid the teen's friends will be injured while paying her homage. So Robin Andrews has removed flowers and other items from the scene of her daughter's fatal car wreck and has moved them to the family's home, 628 S. Walnut St.

Robin Andrews has expressed concern for the lives of Kellyn's friends and classmates who are stopping at the site of the car crash that took Kellyn's life Aug. 6. The wreck also hospitalized two girls who were riding with Kellyn that night.

"We just don't want anyone else injured," Robin said.

Northview students have been stopping to place flowers and other remembrances at the intersection of SR 59 and CR 700N where the accident occurred. The problem is that the intersection is dangerous for pedestrians. At least twice, people have called 911 to report teens walking at the intersection.

Kellyn's mother invites students and their parents to visit her home instead. If students want to honor Kellyn with a remembrance, flowers and other items can be more safely left on the curb of the quiet city street.

Robin also invites children or parents to visit them.
