Woman charged for fatal Yigo hit-and-run

Posted: Updated:

Over three months has passed since three teenage girls were killed in a hit-and-run accident along Chalan Ramirez in Yigo. Although no arrests have been made, a woman who is believed to be responsible for their deaths is being charged in superior court.

On Friday afternoon, a superior court grand jury handed down a true bill against 24-year-old Quadlyn Layan Gorong. According to court documents, Gorong is being charged with three counts each of manslaughter with a special allegation for possession and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony, negligent homicide with a special allegation for possession and use of a deadly weapon and commission of a felony, reckless driving with injuries, and reckless conduct.

Gorong is being charged for operating the suspect car - a 2005 Nissan Sentra - believed to have been used in the triple fatal-autoped that took the lives of three best friends: 16-year-old Saly Anna Edwin Santos, 19-year-old Chericca Bryan Gallen, and 16-year-old Julia Gibson George. Santos and George were both students at Simon Sanchez High School while Gallen was a recent graduate of the Yigo school.

As we've been reporting, the best friends called themselves the "Starsquad." on that November night, the trio visited a friend's house in the Gil Baza Subdivision but didn't have a ride home to Agafa Gumas so they walked. The following morning, police were called to the scene where the three girls were found unconscious - two pronounced dead at the scene while one remained in critical condition for hours before passing away.

Gorong has yet to be arrested, but court documents show a summons was issued for her to appear before Magistrate Judge Alberto Tolentino on March 18.

According to police spokesperson Officer AJ Balajadia, Gorong is the same suspect identified late last year. Gorong reportedly turned herself into the Dededo Precinct following the accident.
