    If there was no snow or ice on the road, and there were wet she had to be speeding and lost control of her car and hit the telephone pole. And you should always wear your seatbelt.

      yea you really need to say your sorry because I am a friend of the family as well and she was a very nice lady and will be missed greatly. I would appreciate it if you would say sorry and not assume things about others.

      I’m really sorry, but I can think of a great many other scenarios than the one you came up with. My mom always used to say that if you don’t know what you’re talking about, you’re really better off not talking at all. Over the years, I’ve come to understand how right she was.

      What it was…was a tragedy. I cant believe some people would immediately pass judgment like they’re some kind of god and holier than the rest of us.
      SHAME ON YOU CRYSTAL!

      Who died and left you to pass JUDGEMENT on others. Do you know the person ? Really, do you? I do! She was a childhood friend of two of my cousins, she was kind, caring, loving and a wonderful person and mother. I pray that nothing like this happens to you and someone writes the same about you.
      How would your family feel??? Think next time….,

    Excuse me Crystal, but I’m a friend of the family. You should NEVER assume that someone was speeding. We believe that she may of had a heart attack. Thanks for your assumption, but no thanks.

    Oh and Crystal, were you at the scene to see if she was in fact wearing a seatbelt? Ok, just checking.

    I drove past this accident and it was just terrible. I am so sorry for her family and friends.

    We drove past the accident scene and the firefighters were standing side by side to shield the rescue from view of passing motorists. The road was wet and there was no ice nor snow. She could have had some sort of medical event that caused this. If someone has a heart attack usually the leg extends and that would cause acceleration of the vehicle. Always sad when anyone dies.
