CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

24-year-old Mattie Stubbs was a beloved mother, wife and sister killed in the prime of her life.

"We are all still grieving her loss," says her family and friends

Just before 3 a.m. Mattie and her friend Shamanique Bryant were outside the Park Avenue Lounge where Bryant's brother was shot.  Bryant was driving her brother to the hospital with Mattie riding as a passenger.

Police say Bryant then rear ended a car near E. 118th and Euclid Ave.

Mattie was ejected from the car while Bryant kept driving down Euclid.

Police say Bryant returned a short while later and ran over her friend Mattie who was still lying in the street.

"The girl left the scene and then came back and ran over her, so we are definitely going to follow up with detectives to make sure she gets the sentencing that she needs," says one of Mattie's family members.

There's no word on how long Mattie laid in the street or if she was alive before she was run over she was pronounced dead at the scene.

At 24 years old, Mattie Stubbs is gone and all that is left are questions and her memory.

Her loved ones describe her as a good mother and wife, who just wanted to go back to school and be happy. 

Bryant was arrested for aggravated vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of an accident and driving while drunk.
