A 10-year-old girl killed Friday in a two-car collision in Beaufort County is being remembered by her school as a girl with a beautiful smile.

Hannah Diane Cuthrell of Grimesland was killed in a car wreck near her school east of Washington on Friday.

Hannah previously had attended G.R. Whitfield Elementary School in Grimesland but recently began attending Washington Montessori Public Charter School, according to her obituary. 

The Montessori school was closed Monday to mourn the loss of Hannah, and students and staff who planned to attend a celebration of life service Tuesday were excused about noon.

“For those of you who knew Hannah, we ask that you remember and celebrate her joy, kindness to everyone, beautiful smile, and love of art,” the school’s website said. “For those of you who did not know Hannah, we ask that you respect our sadness and support us with your understanding.”

The school also planned to have grief counselors available Tuesday to provide support for its students.

A celebration of life service will be held at 2 p.m. today at Covenant Church in Winterville.

Hannah died at the scene of the wreck at the intersection of U.S. 264 and Lizzard Slip Road about 8:10 a.m. Friday, according to the State Highway Patrol.

Margaret Cuthrell was driving a Honda Odyssey van east on U.S. 264 when she attempted to turn left on to Lizzard Slip Road. The van was hit on its right side by a Jeep Wrangler that was traveling west on U.S. 264, according to the highway patrol.

Hannah was sitting in the right rear passenger seat. Margaret Cuthrell and a younger boy, who was sitting behind the driver, were not seriously injured, according to the patrol. 

No charges have been filed in the wreck, although it is still under investigation.
