Skip to comments.Forest Grove fatal crash: For teen charged with hit and run, 'difficult times are here'

Before the Sunday night crash that killed two young step-sisters playing in a pile of leaves in Forest Grove, Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros, along with her boyfriend and brother, went to get something to eat.
Attorneys for Garcia-Cisneros said Friday, Oct. 25, that the teens went to Sonic Drive-In in Cornelius, where Garcia-Cisneros had recently been hired. She was supposed to start her new job this week.
From there, the three started toward home in a 2001 Nissan Pathfinder. Court records say Garcia-Cisneros was driving. The vehicle, records say, belonged to her boyfriend Mario Echeverrias mother.
Garcia-Cisneros purposely drove through a large leaf pile on Main Street, according to court records, and felt a significant bump. At her home, blocks away, she asked Echeverria to check the SUV for damage. Her 17-year-old brother returned to the scene on Main Street and told his sister she had run over a child, records say.
Police say step-sisters Abigail Robinson, 11, and Anna Dieter-Eckerdt, 6, were struck while apparently lying in the leaf pile on Sunday. Anna died at the scene. Abigail died the next night at a Portland hospital.
Garcia-Cisneros and Echeverria, both 18, were arrested Tuesday evening. In Washington County Circuit Court, Garcia-Cisneros has been charged with two counts of felony hit and run. Echeverria faces one count of hindering prosecution. Records say Echeverria took the SUV to a car wash after the crash to destroy evidence.
Garcia-Cisneros, born in Mexico, has lived nearly all of her life in the United States, her attorneys said. She graduated from Forest Grove High School in 2012, and attended local elementary and middle schools before that.

Toss her in prison and deport every illegal in her family.
Quite a sob story by this writer and the friends of the driver.
The six and eleven year old step sisters are dead and the driver left the scene and then knowingly tried to erase evidence.
I wouldn’t feel sorry for her even if she were an American citizen or a legal immigrant, of course she isn’t.
Driving over little girls Americans won’t drive over.
I notice that the Oregonian staff neglected to mention that the perp has an ICE hold on her...guess that didn’t fit the narrative that the perp is the victim because of age, sex. and ethnicity. Nevermind that the real victims be DEAD!!!
They arent in the shadows if they are too lazy to stay at behind closed doors and cook.
In the shadows would be if they live in a basement most their life and care 24/7 for a disabled person.
According to the article one day she wants anchor babies of her own.
Oregon got enough signatures for a petition of illegal alien driver licenses.
I cannot tell from the story exactly where the little girls were. Were they in the middle of the road covered with leaves? On the sidewalk? In their front yard? If they were in the road, some fault lies with their parents or guardians. It doesn’t say the driver jumped the curb or anything.
The way this is written you almost feel sorry for the homicidal illegal scum.
Records say, were struck by a vehicle when they were apparently lying in a pile of leaves on the street. ””
A couple of the comments on the site make it appear that the pile of leaves were in the road. If true, you gotta wonder where the parents were that they didn’t notice this.
It happened in the 1700 block of Main St. in Forest Grove.
Enter this address... 1704 Main St, Forest Grove, OR ...on Google maps and go to street view looking north.
Narrow street and low curbs...In an earlier article it said the pile of leaves was on the parkway but spilling into the street.
It’s tragic but, how are you suppose see kids in a pile of of leaves on the street?
Washing off your car to hide evidence of it, go to prison.
I posted that so everyone could see the approximate location where it took place.
I doubt anyone knows for sure the location of the pile of leaves or the kids from the newspaper articles.
We do know they left the scene and tried to destroy evidence and cover up that she killed at least one person.
Garcia-Cisneros, born in Mexico, has lived nearly all of her life in the United States, her attorneys said.
Translation: Yet another illegal alien criminal.
Yeah, the headline expresses sympathy for the illegal alien, but there is nothing about the lives of the parents of the dead children.
A prior article I saw here said the girls were hit in their own yard.
I agree. If the leaves were in the street ...
but two teenagers...HANG UP!....
“I cannot tell from the story exactly where the little girls were.”
Although I read about this before, I just now realized how late it was when this happened 8:30 at night.
So I poked around the site for an earlier article. Per that piece the girls were in the leaf pile, which spanned the street and the sidewalk/yard, but the cops think the girls were in the street and they do not think the car left the road. And the girl’s father was there with them, but either he was distracted or went into the house briefly at some point (that is how the article puts it, not clear at all where he actually was and it seems like he did not see what happened).
I understand that this was a terrible accident, but I wonder if the driver was some middle-aged white person if they’d get such a sympathetic write-up.
But nevertheless kids should not be playing near the street ever.
The illegals should be charged at least with trying cover it up, not going for help and being in the country illegally
