LUMPKIN COUNTY, Ga. -- A north Georgia family is mourning the loss of one teenage daughter, while another still fights for her life.

Annah Robinson, 16, was killed in a single vehicle crash Saturday night on Rail Hill Road near Dahlonega in Lumpkin County.

The driver was her 18-year-old boyfriend, Forrest Blake, who was treated and released from the hospital.

Annah's sister, Emilee Robinson, was also riding in the car. She was flown to a hospital in Atlanta in critical condition with severe head injuries.

Friends of the family came to the crash site Monday to place flowers and stuffed animals.

"Let them know God's going to be there to give them the strength to move on," said Joy Ward.

Ward's younger daughter goes to school with Emilee and her older daughter was friends with Annah.

"I think a bunch of them are taking it pretty hard, especially the kids in school," Ward said.

The crash happened right in front of the Robinson family's home.

Georgia State Patrol says a new 2014 Ford Mustang came out of the family's driveway, went onto the shoulder of the road, over-corrected, then swerved across both lanes and over an embankment. The car then slammed head-on into tree.

Investigators told WSB-TV Channel 2 Action News that drugs and alcohol were not involved, but they're working to determine how fast the car was going and if Blake will face any charges.

A family member of the two victims says they wanted the public to know they hold no ill feelings toward him.
