I feel sorry for the tragic accident. However, because of her age seriously you give her traffic citations.. I had an accident myself and injured nobody else and it was due to another car hitting me and running. I got more than 2 traffic violations. I was even sent to Baltimore Shock because of my injuries. This state is a joke..

I have this mental image of bodies laying every where in the parking lot and the Deputy saying, "Ma'am, I'm gonna have to cite you for this."

You are misinformed. The three people that were killed were all related. The woman who hit them was a fellow church-goer, not a relative.

Thanks for the link. It cleared a little bit up. I have to agree with other posters though. Yes, this was a tragic accident, and, yes, this woman does have to live with it the rest of her life. However, if the driver would have been a twenty-something killing three pedestrians, wouldn't they have at least been charged with involuntary manslaughter?
I went to the link and have one question...How does a vehicle RAPIDLY accelerate??? Does it do it by itself?? I would think someone would have to have their foot on the gas pedal. Accident or not...three people...Count them ..three are dead.

People, It's her age that she is only getting a slap on the hand. THE END!!! She is 63 and to this day may not even know what had happen.
