I feel the same for the family. We do not have to know people to feel compassion for them in times like this.

She was not on the phone. She just ran off the road and over corrected and the SUV being top heavy flipped. No blame should be placed. It is just a horrable accident.

Our prayers go out to this family as well. We are friends of the family here in concord. Let's not assume or "have a feeling" that the driver WAS on a cell phone...Perhaps she simply just ran off the shoulder as we ALL have done at some point...
God's peace to the Cress family.

The grandmother is still unconscious at this point and has a very hard and long road to recovery. The mother was alert but also many injuries but should physically be ok.

We were at the scene when this tragedy occured. I didn't know the family, but my heart goes out to them. The mother who couldn't get to her children (she was trapped in the car) must be devastated and the grandma (I don't know her condition, but she was unconscious at the scene-is she okay?) must feel horrible. I pray that everyone close to them showers them with support and love because they will need it. May God be with them all.
