BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Loved ones and family filled Longfellow Park with pink balloons in memory of 33 year-old Breunkia Collins who died this past weekend after a hit-and-run accident.

Police say Collins was crossing the street to a hookah lounge on Sunday evening when she was hit at the intersection of South Sherwood Forest Boulevard near Haymarket Avenue. Collins was rushed to the hospital where she died the following day.

The alleged driver, Jacob Knazs, turned himself in last Thursday and was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. Katz was charged with hit-and-run.

Breunkia’s grandmother has one wish and that is to get justice for her granddaughter. “Right now, I’m hurt because I feel like the man who struck my daughter, my granddaughter, could’ve stopped the car. He could’ve came and said well I’m sorry,” said Williemae Williams, grandmother of Breunkia Collins.

LaTriesha Caines, sister of Breunkia Collins, said alongside her grandmother she also feels hurt in the aftermath of the deadly incident. “Even if he was scared, he could’ve gone to the nearest police station or anything. He didn’t have top hit her and just leave then he turned himself in a couple of days after. He didn’t turn himself in, he didn’t even report it. I thank God we have justice but I don’t approve the charges,” she said. “I’m just hurt.”

Loved ones and family members ask for Breunkia’s memory to stay alive, and remember her as “one of the best.”

“For any little thing she could do for you, she would do it. That’s the type of person she was. She was one of the best, she was one of the best, ” said Williams.
