Facebook feud takes innocent life

Posted by Elizabeth Stewart - email

PONTIAC, MI (WFLX) - A Facebook feud costs an innocent woman her life. Police say twenty-three year-old Torrie Emery intentionally rammed her car into another car causing it to hit a dump truck.

Police say she had been arguing with a passenger in that other car on Facebook over a man. That woman was injured, but the person driving the other car who had nothing to do with the online feud was the one who ended up dying in the crash.

"It did not involve Alicia. Her life was taken for somebody else's beef," said a friend of the victim. 

Emery had her three-year-old daughter in the car with her at the time. She and the little girl were not injured.

Emery is due in court this Thursday.
