On Tuesday, police in Forest Grove arrested Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros, 18, after she reportedly ran over and killed two girls on Sunday, and fled the scene.
The victims, 6-year-old Anna Dieter-Eckerdt and her step-sister, 11-year-old Abigail Robinson were playing in a pile of leaves in front of their house on Main Street, when the Nissan Pathfinder driven by Garcia-Cisneros plowed into them, according to court documents.
Garcia-Cisneros drove home and asked her boyfriend Mario Echeverria, 18, to check the vehicle for damage.
Echeverria was also in the vehicle at the time of the crash.
The Oregonian reported:
Echeverria, records say, told police he took the vehicle to Kaady Kar Wash in Hillsboro on Monday “to wash the car, eliminate the evidence, in order to protect” his girlfriend.
Echeverria has also been charged with one count of hindering prosecution.
Both are due back in court on Oct. 30.
A memorial service for Anna and Abigail will be held on Saturday at Sonrise Church in Hillsboro. The service begins at 10 a.m. and the public is invited to attend.
