On Sunday morning, employees at PS-Stearns Inc. received the devastating news.

Their fellow worker, 24-year-old Ali Fuhrman was killed in a hit-and-run crash.

"I was so shocked and devastated,” said Karen Gray.  “It's incomprehensible.  It really is."

The crash happened around 2:30 a.m. Sunday at the intersection of Asbury and West Ridge Roads.  Investigators say 29-year-old Matthew Gerrans of Lake City crashed into Fuhrman and then fled the area on foot.

Ali died at the scene.  Her father who was driving her home, identified as 53-year-old Patrick Fuhrman, survived.

"The fact that she made a responsible decision, (and) was not careless, her dad had left to go and get her, that in and of itself is a tragedy." Said PS-Stearns Inc. Director Michelle Marzka.

Police have not filed any charges against Gerrans.  The investigation is ongoing.
