The parents of a 4-month-old killed in a car crash yesterday on Old Statesville Road say they have forgiven the driver who took their daughter's life. Javone Johnson and Kyla Davis revisited the site of the deadly crash on Wednesday afternoon.

"He would never mean for something like this to happen, he made a mistake," said Johnson who was holding back tears. "I hate to see a good person go through something like this,he didn't mean harm to anyone...anyone."

A memorial in honor of the little girl killed has been created on the light pole that Thabiti Pierre-Louis's Nissan Altima cut in half from the force of the crash. 21-year-old Pierre-Louis had been drinking before getting behind the wheel. The family said they were at a friend's house for the afternoon and there were five people who got into the car when they left the friend's house. To make room for the passengers, the decision was made to put the baby's car seat in the trunk. Davis had the child riding on her lap in the back seat.

The crash was the result of Pierre-Louis trying to pass a car at a high rate of speed. He then lost control of the car and began to slide sideways when his car struck the curb and flipped into the light pole. The force of the impact threw the child from the car and the little girl was pronounced deceased on scene by MEDIC. Other riders were taken to Carolina's Medical Center with non life threatening injuries.

Pierre-Louis was charged with DWI, child seat violation, and over-crowding a vehicle. Once he was treated for his injuries, he was trasnported to the Mecklenburg County Jail and served with warrants for Felony Death by Motor Vehicle, Reckless Driving, Possession of Marijuana, and Child Neglect.

Pierre-Louis is expected to be in court tomorrow and Johnson said he will be there in support of his friend.

"If that means anything to the court, I don't know," said Johnson "I just want him to know, I'm there for him."
