HANOVER, VA (WWBT) -

A teen driver has been charged with reckless driving in a February crash that killed a beloved Hanover pre-school teacher. 

Suzanne O'Donnell died on March 7 after she suffered serious injuries in crash in the 9100 block of Kings Charter Drive on Feb. 27.

The Hanover County Sheriff’s Office said earlier this year that an investigation indicated a Dodge Caliber crossed both lanes of Kings Charter Drive and struck O'Donnell, who was out for a walk.

O'Donnell taught at the New Hanover Christian School.

"Heaven gained one amazing angel today," a Facebook post from the school said. "You will be greatly missed Mrs. O'Donnell ... you are so loved by all!"

There were dozens of comments from parents expressing how much she meant to their children.

"My girls adored Suzanne," said one post. "Teaching will not be the same without Suzanne's special touch on everything."

Another parent said, "She taught my son how to read and was just beginning to teach my daughter. Thank you for that incredible gift, Mrs. O'Donnell."
