From the Chronicle article:

http://www.chron.com/news/houston-te...ly-3299899.php

Two teens who died in a car accident Friday on a rain-slickened road had developed a deep friendship in a short time, family members said.

Anne Donlon of Hockley and Katie Walker of Tomball, both 19, had known each other only six weeks, said Van Walker, Katie's father.

They were killed at 10:30 a.m. on Friday when Donlon lost control of her 2005 Ford Taurus on a curve on Roberts Cemetery Road and skidded into the path of a northbound Dodge pickup driven by Samuel Espe, 24, of Magnolia.

Espe suffered minor injuries, according to a Department of Public Safety report. He and both teens were wearing seat belts, the report said.

"Both were very, very sweet young women of ," Walker said. "Both had high Christian standards and morals. That was one thing that kind of drew them together."

They were both home-schooled until graduating from high school in 2010. Donlon worked as a waitress at Main Street Crossing in Tomball and Walker worked at Gringo's Mexican Kitchen. Walker, who had a passion for singing, was studying music and wanted to be a worship leader, her father said.

"Today she is leading worship in heaven," he said Saturday.

On Thursday, Walker had stayed overnight at the Donlon home and the two had watched a movie together, Theresa Donlon said.

"The next morning, they were in their pink jammies, just giggling and drinking coffee," Donlon said.

They were on their way back to the Walker home when the accident happened.

"My heart goes out to the young man involved in the accident," he said. "He did nothing wrong; the girls did nothing wrong. It was an accident."

Thats terrible. My thoughts are with the families and that they find the strength to get past this tragedy. I also feel for the driver of the other truck, because even though it was an accident (it looks like the ford went sideways into the front of that truck), hes going to have to live with that on his mind for the rest of his life....

RIP to two people who were lost way to early.

My gf said another one of their co-workers who was close the the father, went to their house to offer condolences. They had family and members of their church there and were doing group prayers. He said it was very moving because they also included the driver of the other vehicle in their prayers.

She also said that the mother had been previously diagnosed with cancer and is in the middle of heavy chemo at least once a week where the father has to continuously miss some work to take her to her therapy. Such a tough time, very sad...

I hate them curves on Ride Smart. I have known several people who have died on that .5 mile section. I hope the county will one day stop turning a blind eye to the area. I'm sure its mostly to due with the fact its on the county line. They even tried to put gravel in the road for "grip" what a massive fail that was....

Rip and prayers sent to the family.

That's very sad and sickening to hear that two young girls were involved in a fatal accident. It seems like they had their life planned out too. Hopefully they can reach their goals up there. Giving peace and prayers to these two.

, that's so sad for two of them to go at such a young age.

and the poster above is right, its the drivers responsibility to control their car - not the county or the state. No doubt hundreds of drivers manage to take that corner every day in all conditions without a problem.

But it still sucks..

The road is clearly marked with proper signs. How about we just have some self control and let off the gas on roads that have been rained on.
Have you ever driven on Ride Smart? It's the countys response ability to maintain safe roads. Fairly sure my tax dollars are collected with that as a stipulation. How the did I blame the government? That road base they used is too slick to drive on, needs to be redone.
