Courtney Gainey to stand trial for deadly hit and run crash in September

LEE COUNTY, Fla. — A trial date has been set for the woman accused of killing a 14-year-old girl in a hit and run crash has been set.

Courtney Gainey, the driver accused of killing Allana Staiano, will stand trial on September 21. Staiano, a seventh-grader at Calusa Middle School, was walking home with a friend when a driver hit her and her friend, Staiano’s mom, Christine Gray, said.

Staiano died from her injuries.

A person who witnessed the crash said they were driving behind Gainey, who was driving a black 2008 GMC Envoy, and knew Gainey was in the car with two other people. The witness said Gainey was the only adult in the car.

The State may file witness tampering charges against Gainey. She’s accused of texting a witness and asking them not to testify.

Even if the extra charge is filed, her trial date will not change.

Allana’s mom, Christine Gray, said that the slow court system needs to change.

“To have this all be laid out over and over again is emotionally and physically destructive,” she said.

Gray said that it’s painful for her to see Gainey out of jail and posting on social media while waiting for the trial to begin.
