Family remembers woman struck and killed by a car in Port St. Lucie

Family remembers woman struck and killed by a car in Port St. Lucie

A Port St. Lucie woman who was killed last year while she walked to her school bus stop would have turned 20 Tuesday.

The father of Dayanna Gil placed a plaque at the spot on Lucero Drive where his stepdaughter was hit last April.

He translated the plaque that was made in Colombia where Dayanna was born.

"My lovely daughter, from your aunt, father, mother.  We are always going to be missing you.  We are always going to come up to your memorial.  We are always going to have you in our heart," Gustavo Arzuaga said.

The family has joined with residents on the block to wage a campaign against speeders in the community.

Some traffic-calming measures have been put in place, but the family is still looking for justice.

The woman who is charged with hitting Dayanna has yet to go to trial.
