MKE crash survivor: ‘I got saved for a reason.'

Tionna Hicks, 15, survived a fatal crash on 35th Street and Capitol Drive at the beginning of October.

Sadly, she lost her cousin, 27-year-old Shakela Rhodes and Rhodes' 11-month old daughter Aaliyah.

“I’ve got to keep their name alive and I’ve got to follow my dreams. Like I got saved for a reason,” Hicks said.

Hicks hopes for justice. Milwaukee man Reggie Gaston, 22, is facing multiple criminal charges in connection with the crash.

If you would like to support Hicks and her family, there is a GoFundMe page set up in her name.
