"Police said they have been unable to conclusively say what caused Zimmerman to run off the road -- such as her falling asleep or perhaps being run off the road -- and her family is seeking closure."

Bad weather. Woman. Driving sport utility vehicle.

Case closed.

You are most likely right in this case...however I have seen alot of your other posts and common sense is not involved in most of them.

WOW, an accident caused by agressively driving an SUV on the PA TPK.. I never would have ever expected something like that to happen. Chances are her family could get closure by honoring her memory by slowing down, wearing a seat belt, and selling their gas guzzlers!

Wow, such hostility, why doesnít everyone calm down a little. Itís obvious no one here actually knows what happened to cause this crash, and as we all learned as kids when you assume you only make an ass out of you and me, or in this case just you.

I agree! I've almost been in numerous accidents on the Northeast extension.. and the vast majority involved SUVs (I drive a small car).

I recall someone on these forums, a day or so after the accident, saying they witnessed it or knew someone that saw the accident.

Ya know for all you smart asses out there, here's 1 for ya, I had a freinds truck, driven by someone else attempt to run me off the road, Had me all the way on the shoulder of the road.(I'm assuming because I was doing the speed limit),(because of lost brakes), and he was a smart ass, don't know wether or ot he knew it was me in a different then normal vehicle I usually drive, but did intentionally run me off the road. And this was at 55 mph.
If I'd have known it wasn't my XXX Friend driving I would have called the cops on his dumb ass.
There are alot of ignorent people out there that don't care about anything more then money and this is 1 of the people and families that do it.
I hope it comes back on whom ever may have done this.

GOD has misterious ways of opperating. God bless her and her families souls whether it been her faughlt or not. And if not may those responcible be hung out to dry, or better yet delt with by the family themselves.
May the Angels be watching.

I am always amazed by the ignorant postings on mcall.com . Thanks for not disappointing me tonight. I find it unbelievable that most of the sexist remarks are going un-checked. Yes, no man has ever talked on a cell phone while driving. No man has ever been careless and/or agressive while driving. Sorry, folks, I'm intelligent enough to know that men are involved in -- and cause -- their fair share of accidents.
