Good evening readers, thanks for the comments. It appears more details will surface tomorrow. I certainly understand that emotions are running high given the accident, but please wait to make your judgments until after the whole story comes to light. Best regards, jd

Has it ever occurred to you that the person driving suffered an unexpected medical incident? It was not drug/ alcohol related, no texting, nothing intentional or reckless, it was a horrible accident that could happen to you someday too. Hold your tongue until you hear the whole story.

I heard she had a heart attack although they haven't confirmed that. I agree with the previous comment completely.

Yes, if there was a heart attack that occured, I apologize. However, if it's not medical related than I'd hope for some type of punishment. My apologies for speaking out so quickly.
