VANDERBURGH CO., IN (WFIE) -
A traffic accident claimed the life of a 16-year-old girl in Vanderburgh County. Investigators say Brianna Patrick was driving on Darmstadt Road Tuesday morning when her car collided with an SUV.
Friends say Brianna was on her way to the Vanderburgh 4-H Center. It's been an emotional time in the barn, friends gathering around Brianna's horse, Sonny, to remember the 10 years some of them have been riding together.
It looks like Sonny, a 16-year-old quarter horse, is looking around for his 16-year-old rider. The two would have shown Wednesday in the fair's pleasure class.
The mare is still getting a lot of attention as friends gather around to remember her rider, Brianna.
"Just how funny and caring she was. She could make anyone laugh," Brianna's best friend Harper Wedeking said.
Harper and Brianna were honors students together. When they weren't in the classroom, they were in the barn.
"I think it set us apart from other best friends because it's something we're both so passionate about. It's something that is kind of like a full time job, so we were together a lot riding," Harper said.
Brianna worked at Holiday World along with her boyfriend, Colin. Friends say she was a positive person that everyone wanted to be around.
"I learned a lot from her since she was older. She was always up for a challenge and she would never really back down until there was no hope. She'd ride horses and they'd buck her off or she'd fall off, and she'd get right back on," another friend Annie Gilkey said.
Annie's mom, Kim, owns the stable where Brianna learned to ride at age seven. Kim remembers the last moments she shared with Brianna.
"She came in with her friend Harper and they were sitting right there at the table. We were just talking and she looked so pretty. They were getting ready to hit the fair. I was playing with her hair and just talking to her and said, 'I'm going to go home and I'll see you guys in the morning,'" Kim recalled.
Brianna donated her organs and her friends say they're so proud of her decision.
"As hard as it is for all of us to lose her, what she's doing for someone else, possibly her age, younger or even a little older, she's giving them a special, special gift," Kim said.
The Horse and Pony club is collecting donations to help cover Brianna's funeral costs. You can donate at the fair or mail donations to the extension office. The club says they will be matching the donations up to $1,000.
Brianna's visitation is set for Friday at Boone Funeral Home East Chapel on Washington Avenue from 1 to 8 p.m. A private funeral is Saturday.
