In order to charge the culprit(s) with a hate crime, a criminal act of violence needs to occur which is motivated by hatred of "actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability of the victim, or is a violation of the State, local, or tribal hate crime laws."

Unfortunately, she wasn't which is may be why she was ejected from the car. Her pa/ssenger was not thrown from the vehicle, and exited the car after it stopped. He crawled over to her body which is all the further he got. Amazingly, the pas/senger survived four to six hours outdoors with temperatures in the teens or lower.

So far authorities aren't saying much. An autopsy was performed Saturday at the State Medical Examiner Office. But neither they, nor the Marion County Sheriff's office, nor the Division of Criminal Investigation are revealing any details of the case other than her name, age and address.

At times, he was traveling over 130 mph

Why did he decide to try run away, instead of accepting the police stop like a man? I dunno, but stupidity likely plays a big part of it.
