Gabriella Giselle Camejo


Malibu native Gabriella Giselle Camejo died as the result of a hit and run car accident on Sunday in Baltimore, Md. She was 22.

Born Jan. 11, 1987 to Suzanne Camejo, Camejo graduated from Malibu High School in 2005. At the time of her death, she was attending the Maryland Institute College of Art as a fine art major. Camejo was a senior and was to graduate in May on the Dean’s List.

The accident occurred Sunday evening, while Camejo was crossing the street near school with a male friend. A car driven by an unidentified woman, who left the scene of the accident, hit the two as they crossed the street. Camejo died of cardiac arrest shortly after her arrival at the hospital. The male friend remains in stable condition.

Friends and family issued a joint statement about Camejo: “Gabby was a very intimate person, and those who were fortunate enough to have known her were the luckiest people in the world.”

Services are pending.
