  • The above article left out the fact the driver of the SUV was on his phone, and that is why he didn’t see her until the last minute. She is fighting for her life because whatever was on his phone just couldn’t wait.

  • I know the person in the SUV and he was NOT on his cell phone. Maybe you should read both police reports!

  • Just because you know him doesn’t mean you know if he was on the phone or not. She’s gone because he wasn’t paying attention. Her daughters have lost their mother...her mother has lost her daughter...her sister has lost her best friend.
