It keeps getting posted on here that the truck driver took his life. However, I have checked the obits in the tri city area and he is not in any of them. I am beginning to wonder if this is a complete lie that somebody has told. And, if so, why would you do that??

I guess it's possible the family chose not to publish an obit or there was a delay of some sort, but seems very odd.

I'm not saying it's true or not because, I simply don't know. But I have had a few friends and family members that chose to end their own lives and I know that in nearly ALL the cases that the family chose not to have it published in the obits because of how some people react to suicides. The service is usually very hushed and only very close members and friends of the family attend.

I'm not saying that this is what is going on, but this is how most families deal with such situations.

I am so disgusted with what is going on with the comments that OMG copied from the other sites. Those people defending tiffani had to give up here because I believe we are too strong to let them belittle us and what we know really happened as I was a witness that day
I absolutely think the idea mentioned before about facebook is wonderful. We HAVE to do something in this community to raise awareness and prevent these kinds of things, although we will need to be prepared for the idiots and the stupidity of the people like we have seen on the comments on here and the other news/paper websites, but I know I am.
No one needs to make a facebook or do anything as this matter is coming to a close. They are not going to let this be swept under the rug as the authorities already know the community is out for justice. The EPD is as well. How many times have you seen our police department go to so much trouble to re-enact the scene? They are getting ready to present a case that is so air tight that it will be a open-shut case. I predict this woman will lose her other child to the courts and lose her freedom as well the same day. I have a feeling that they are going to make an example of this woman to others who think they can have kids and a drug habit at the same time.

The only way she could get a dime is if it was the truck driver's fault which it was 100% NOT his fault. She is so messed up in the head, trying to get $ for something she is responsible for!!

When will they finish the investigation? Its been 10 days. The general public knows what happened, why not the police yet? The neglect of this pitiful mom got her child killed. If it takes this long for a very simple case, I cannot imagine how long it takes for a complicated one. No wonder the public has no faith in the PD in Eliz. Sheesh......
Give them time! Do you not realize if any indictments are to be handed down the Police want their ducks in a row to ensure a conviction be it the driver or the MOTHER who is at fault.This is such a tragedy my heart hurts, when I first heard this I lost my breath and told my husband "I bet he was excited wanting to play at Mcdonalds". I don't even know this family and I'm crying trying to post this comment.

I also was there. 80ft is about accurate. I will also add that she was behind the fenced parking lot at Walgreens completely shielded FROM her child. She was unaware of anything until she hear the commotion. And 2 very kind citizens from their cars attended to the boy on scene. Mom never approached the child. She attacked the poor distraught truck driver.
The truck drivers bear an agony I cannot imagine. The mom has proven herself to be a danger and menace to society and should be dealt with accordingly.
OMG!
No clue

Mom that was on Suboxone wrote:
<quoted text>
For you Deadbeat who is uneducated about Suboxone... You do not get JUICED on suboxone. Suboxone is a maintance drug the helps curve the withdrawls from opiods. Suboxone does not make you HIGH in ANY way. If she was on Suboxone she was seeking help for addiction. All suboxone patients are closely monitored by doctors. If you fail drug tests they are required to remove you from the program. As a Suboxone patient you are required to attend NA/AA meetings and submit to random drug screens and pill or strip counts. You have till end of the business day to go for your random count and drug test. If she was on Suboxone she was trying to get help. It does not make you feel high in any way. Only prevents sickness! Oh and it also contains Naloxone which is a opiate blocker so you can't feel opiods.
So everyone on suboxone are trying to get off drugs??? I think not!!!I KNOW a couple people very well that use the drug to get high whatever kind of a high it gives and yeah some people follow the program and replace their opiods or whatever they were on with suboxone and some people sell them and some people use other drugs along with it knowing it has a blocker.

David Crockett would not wipe his hiney on the lies of Tiffani Holston! David likes to WIN, and there is no case here.

What attorney who values his or her reputation would take such a "case"? Witnesses and cameras all around, and apparently someone thinks their single story (or stories) will be considered overriding truth? Amazing.

Did anyone else watch the videos? And look up the charges and past news articles, too? Even a novice attorney could have a field day tearing up such a weak (civil) case and witness! Wonder who the attorney is / has been for the criminal cases? And was that attorney appointed by the court (assuming inability to pay)?

Suboxone does have synergistic effects with other drugs, and it is a drug of abuse, probably third in this area to Lortab and Roxicet. Just because someone is on Suboxone does not mean they are trying to get off drugs. Many people go to these drug treatment clinics for years and years. It is like an alcoholic going to the bar every day and JUST drinking a six pack because he is trying to quit. Either you want to quit or you don't. There is no in between. The in between is there because people are getting rich off it.

Her attorney for the criminal cases was Crockett also and she was paying him

She wasn't supposed to have unsupervised visits with the little boy. It was court ordered 3 days prior. Whoever let that happen is at fault too. She needs help...not money. She doesn't appear to need to be around the daughter either. The truck drive WAS NOT at fault in any way. She was...for negligence at the least.
Huh

Driver did commit suicide on sat evening. Family just made arrangements today. Very sad. He was a good man who felt tremendous guilt for this accident. We (his family). Learned today that the mother was high. Proof being her toxicology tests results. Such a shame. Now two lives are on her hands.
