Noblesville, April 23 -   Early Sunday morning, a high school teenager slammed her car into a bridge embankment on Cyntheanne Road just south of State Road 38 in Hamilton County. Investigators say the car burst into flames.

Sixteen year-old Chasity Bradford was a junior at Hamilton Southeastern High School.

Sergent Jason Sloderbeck from the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department explains what happened: "I believe the car was moving at a high rate of speed when they hit the embankment and there were no skid marks prior to impact."

Chasity Bradford died in the crash. She was a well-liked junior at Hamilton Southeastern High School.

"Everyone loved her. It is sad to see someone well liked and to see that happen. I can't believe it happened to her, it is sad to see that " said fellow student Carly Colgan.

Chasity was a track star who set the school record as a pole vaulter. Dozens of friends came to the crash site on the two lane rural road along with Chasity's family.

Her father Mark told the teenagers to always value life like his daughter did.

"Appreciate your mothers and fathers, your step dads and step moms and your friends because tomorrow is not promised to any of us," said Bradford.

Family and friends are now left with the memories of a teenager with an outgoing personality who wanted to be a dentist.     

Counselors will be available at Hamilton Southeastern High School Monday to help students cope with Chasity's death.
