Shiane was buried on Wednesday morning, July 8th.
Diane, her mother, has been discharged from the hospital. She has been charged with reckless driving and failure to secure a child. The accident is still being investigated.
The Montgomery Titans, a local track & field organization, has a very nice tribute to Shiane on their website.
In a Monday morning highway accident, Shiane Dixon of Boyds, Md. was thrown from the family SUV into oncoming traffic. She was struck by a tractor trailer truck and killed. Shiane was 12 years old. She was riding in the cargo (rear) area without a seat belt. (Unless Shiane was in a seat, she may not have had access to a seat belt.)
Driving the vehicle, the mother was wearing a seat belt and lived.
