The death was due to operator error.
I hope we all think twice before we cell and drive.
This sums it up. Someone died who should not have.

Well if it saves one life by someone reading this who stops using their cell phone while driving, or if it prompts legislation to make it illegal, some good may come of it. I am sorry for your loss.

I see frustration being vented because most of us have probably celled and drove or witnessed it first hand.

Look at the first seven posts. In addition to glee is the utter lack of remorse...almost as if the driver got her "just desserts".

I share great annoyance when people drive while talking on their phones when they shouldn't be. I find it dangerous and imprudent. But this doesn't mean we shouldn't have sympathy when they get killed...everyone makes mistakes once in a while.

So, Hands free is the ultimate answer? You need two hands on the wheel to drive? The point is no
phones, make-up, newspapers, while driving...We'll
let you chew gum and drive because, you are the only intelligent driver on the road..
You must be inbred!!!

I agree it a life long loss which you can never bring her back. The loss is multiplied by all her friend and family. I'm sorry for that. The solutions seem simple and with in reach.
