Friends and family of Theresa Drobish, who went by Terri to those close to her, are still reeling from her untimely death in late September. Drobish was walking with her young son Alexander on the southbound sidewalk of Roosevelt Boulevard near Strahle Street when she was struck by a Toyota Camry that had been forced off the road by a Ryder truck, which drove off after the accident and never stopped.
