Grace Glofcheskie - a victim of Hit and Run in Guelph, Ontario

Grace Glofcheskie, age 24, died on December 13, 2015, at a hospital in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. 

It was Saturday night and Grace was out for an evening with friends. Before 3:00 a.m., Grace was walking home from her friend's home on a city street in Guelph when she was struck by a Ford SUV that had been reported stolen earlier. The vehicle was also fleeing from a roadside check done by the Police looking for drunk or impaired drivers. 

Grace was rushed to a nearby hospital where, tragically, she died of her injuries. 

The SUV had rolled over and the driver fled on foot. He was apprehended by the Police around 10 a.m. at a motel in Guelph. 

A 21 year old man, from Guelph, has been taken into custody with respect to this crime. His name is not available as of this posting. He may be charged with break, enter and theft, possession of stolen property, criminal negligence causing death, dangerous driving causing death, flight from police causing death, and breach of probation.

This guy is only 21 years old and already has a rap sheet like Judas.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and are gone before we can say goodbye.

Pray for this family. They have suffered an unspeakable loss. 

God save us from the thieves and the drunk and doped up drivers. They are killing us, Father. Amen.

God save us from those who strike us down on the road and then run away like wolves. Amen. 

Pray that Grace is in Heaven. Pray that she is at peace and is with God. Amen.
