Sup Travellers?! Your first date is supposed to be a wonderful time in your life but for a 12 year old girl from Pittsburgh it turned out to be a very very horrible day. According to reports from the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette, 12 year old Shamera Harris died on her first date last night when her father's car dragged her about 50 feet and slammed into a tree.

Shamera had gotten out of the SUV with her boyfriend in order to take a picture with him but the vehicle began rolling backwards down the hill in which they had parked. While Shamera was outside the car rolled back over her, dragging her down the hill and then crashing into a yard. Paramedics arrived and tried to resuscitate the girl but it was too late. She died on the spot.

Police say that Shamera's dad Richard Benton was drunk and didn't put the car in the right gear when he exited the vehicle. He reportedly smelled of booze and had "slurred speech and glassy, watery eyes." He refused a field sobriety test on the scene and a chemical test of his breath while in custody, and asked to see an attorney. 

"If there's reason to believe he's responsible for this girl's death, then there will be charges," said a lieutenant. "It's one of those things where you have to wait and see."

Is Richard Benton to blame? Hell yes!!! It's his fault that the car rolled down the hill. Maybe if he had obeyed the law and refrained from driving drunk then Shamera may have been alive today to savor her first date. Such an unfortunate ending for young Shamera. RIP.
