TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Toledo police say 17-year-old Abigail Perkins was killed after a crash on Alexis Road Wednesday morning.

The senior at Whitmer High School was westbound on Alexis Road just before 11:30 a.m. when police say she lost control and started to spin.

Perkins' car was then hit by a vehicle driven by Jessica Forche. Emergency crews rushed Perkins to Toledo Hospital where she died.

Family and students began a memorial at the crash site. Her mother wrote, "We'll miss you." Friends also left a note and flowers saying she is "gone but never forgotten." Another friend made a cross out of the fence that was damaged in the accident.

She was involved with the Monroe County 4-H club.

Services have not yet been announced.
