*Update: This beautiful; inspiring girl passed away on March 18th 2012. Please keep her family in your thoughts, as the Bucks County DA has decided to try and charge for 3rd Degree Murder and get justice for Christine and her family
Christine was born on June 10, 1988. She grew up in Warminster, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She was involved in soccer for many years. She graduated from William Tennent High School in 2006. Christine was well known in her neighborhood for babysitting and being a caring, pleasant person. She attended Bucks County Community College for two years before transferring to Kutztown University where she studied graphic design.
She worked part time as a hostess at Outback Steakhouse when she was home from school. Christine always kept busy and was known to work more than one job at a time.Vivacious, carefree, caring, brave, understanding, big-hearted and determined; these are just some of the many words that describe this wonderful woman. She has so much to live for and so much to offer this world.If Christine wanted to accomplish something nothing could stand in her way. Christine could put a smile on anyone’s face without even talking. On December 5, 2008 this young lady was involved in a tragic accident.
Christine McGhee, a beautiful 20 year-old sophomore at Kutztown University was found unconscious and seriously injured in the school parking lot. This was devastating news for the Kutztown community as well as our local community.She was involved in a hit and run and had been dragged about 100 feet by the truck of an acquaintance and left for dead. Found unconscious, she was flown to the hospital and remained in critical condition for quite some time. Her injuries included severe trauma to the head, a shattered jaw, body lacerations, and broken ribs. We were told that she only had a few days to live. This was absolutely devastating to all of us, but thankfully to this day, Christine is still fighting. Unfortunately, the extent of her abilities is limited due to the injuries she sustained. Due to her extreme brain damage she can only do so much. It’s as if she has become trapped in her own body; she cannot move any of her muscles or body parts. With therapy, everyone hopes and prays this will improve
