The Georgia State Patrol said that a 16-year-old girl tragically died while “car surfing,” reports WSB Atlanta.

Anna Hawkins of Daswsonville was riding on the roof of her friends car late Monday night when she was thrown from the SUV after the driver lost control while speeding around a curve.

“The vehicle was traveling south on Couch Road and the preliminary report indicates Miss Hawkins was ‘car surfing,'” said Georgia State Trooper Mark Cox. “The vehicle entered a right-hand curve too fast and the driver lost control. The vehicle traveled across the northbound lane along the shoulder, hit an embankment, then came back into the roadway, throwing Miss Hawkins off the roof. She hit the pavement and sustained substantial head injuries.”

Although Hawkins died at the scene, she was transported to Northside Hospital-Forsyth. Police said that alcohol was not a factor in the incident.

Hawkins was a junior at Dawson County High School and excelled in academics as well as sports. Family members of the beloved teenager say they can’t believe such a smart girl would risk such a dangerous stunt.

“Anna was a beautiful child,” said the girl’s aunt, Lynn Burn. “She was at the top of her class. She was a star soccer player. She was voted most valuable player on her soccer team.”

Police are questioning the driver of the vehicle, who was a close friend of Hawkins and also 16-years-old. It is possible that the friend, who hasn’t had her drivers license for very long, will face charges. Law states that a driver must have their license for at least six months before they can transport anyone besides their family.
