Officials identify 18-year-old cyclist killed after being hit by car in Spring

SPRING, Texas – An 18-year-old woman died Thursday night after being hit by a vehicle while riding her bike, Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman confirmed.

Frassati Catholic High School in Spring identified the young woman as Juana Boada. They released a statement:

“It is with a heavy heart that we share a tragedy that deeply affects our community. Last evening Juana Boada, one of our recent graduates from the class of 2021, was killed in an accident.

Our community has never faced a loss like this and the most important thing we can ask for at this time is prayer. Pray for the family as they suffer this great loss. Pray for one another as we mourn the loss of one of our own. And turn to God in our need and in our sorrow.

Please keep Juana and the Boada family in your prayers.”

Many people stopped along the intersection of Kuykendal Rodd and Springcreek Green Drive in Spring to pay their respects.

“I don’t know her. I don’t know her story. I don’t know the place she was going to go but to all of her loved ones it’s okay to hurt,” one woman said.

Harris County Constable for Precinct 4 says the driver stopped to help, but it was too late for the young woman.

“I don’t know I feel for you. I hope that you see these flowers, and you know that we all feel for you,” one woman said.

Juana had just graduated from Frassati Catholic High School days earlier.

“I hope that something happens in this light and I hope there is some change so that this story doesn’t repeat itself,” a woman said.

“Tragic events like the loss of this beautiful young lady are some of our hardest days in law enforcement. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and with all involved,” Herman said in a statement.
