Mirjana Soldat

Home city: Tecumseh, Ontario
Age: 16
Date of crash: December 26, 1997

Driving at 2:00 AM Boxing Day morning, the car went over railroad tracks, skidded 200 feet, and smashed into a pole on the passenger side where my sister was sitting. Facts show that the emergency brake was pulled, which caused the car to smash into the pole.

Memorial Message

The following message was provided by Mirjana’s sister, Gordanna Soldat.

“Too Young To Die”

This tribute is in memory of my sixteen year old sister Mirjana Soldat, who was killed on December 26, 1997. The driver was found to be at two times over the legal limit. She was too young to die so tragically. “Mira, we love and miss you so much. And we’re going to do everything possible to keep your memory alive. You are our angel.”
