Cars have to drive across cross walks to turn. She was on her cell phone not paying attention and running. All witnesses said so and said she was not paying attention and he could not see her. Get the facts before you speak please.

If you were not there you cannot possibly know what she did. ALL the witnesses said she darted out in the street, running and not looking because she was using her cell...and that "she" ran right into this man after he started turning. IF someone jumps out in front of your moving car...you can't be responsible because you cannot stop in time. I hope she is going to be ok but we witnesses that were there that saw it all, certainly know more than a blogger online.

She was in the cross walk before that truck was even in the turning lane. You wana know how I know I had front row seats to the action I watch that truck plow into her and her white dog I watched that dog go under the truck at one point in time I watched her head smack the ground then bounce and smack it again I looked into her unresponsive eyes has they rolled around in her skull I watched the blood go from her head to that storm drain where she landed a whole 15-20 feet from the cross walk dont tell me I dont know what happened when all I can see everyday is that poor woman getting plowed by an 8000 pound truck

To whom ever 'Devil' is I think you so much. This it that womens daughter. And I think you so much more for taking time to go and check on her and watch what happened to say the truth about it all. I appreciate it so very much.

And whom ever 'Angel' is how would you feel if that was on of your family members that got hit and now she is in ICU.

Caitlyn, we are praying for your Mom everyday and hope she recovers quickly. My son was one of the folks who stop to render aide. He didn't see what happened, but is a military medic and wanted to do all he could to help until EMS arrived. Again, we pray she makes a full recovery.

To Caitlyn... I can assure you that I was not trying to offend you or your mother or anything like that. I have been praying for her recovery from the moment it happened. My only purpose was to correct inaccuracies in the original post by the reporter. I was actually offended by the post that said "I watch that truck plow into her", which implied that the truck driver intentionally drove into her. This is totaly inaccurate from what I, myself, personally heard and SAW.
The last thing I expect when on a vacation is to witness such a terrible accident ...which this was..an accident.
I pray that God will watch over your mother and bless her with a speedy and full recovery.

To Angel, she was plowed into by the truck. She was walking with my dog. And she was already crossing and the truck came speeding and hit her. The driver was drunk. And we looked back at her phone and there was no history of her using what so ever. So how you said she was on the phone and running she wasn't. So please try and get facts straight before you start saying well she was on her phone and she was running because she wasn't.

To Baseball Mom, please Thank your son so much for everything he did to save her. And of it wasn't for him, she probley be dead right now. That why GOD sends angels like your son to help.

Oh my Lord in Heaven how people who were not even at a place can say things that are so untrue. May God forgive those who are trying to disparage a total stranger. IF someone was breaking the law then the police would have arrested them on the spot. I have pity for this woman and her family but I am an honest person and have NEVER said anything so nasty and untrue about anyone involved. Records will prove what is true and not true. My facts are straight. Why not wait til all facts are out in the open before running down someone's reputation.
May God have mercy on the souls of those that lie.

Well it's very funny, how one person was right there when it happened and the other person showed up just in time to help. And at first you said you HEARD about it and now you are saying that you SAW it. And if you don't mind why don't you please go and finish you vacation, and stay out of this. This is now between me, devil, and baseball mom. Because they no exactly what happen.

Actually from the beginning I stated that I SAW and HEARD. No disrespect intended but this is a public forum and anyone can post. Being a witness while on vacation doesn't mean that you can just go home and forget it.
