I think this is shady.
She hit a person!
How would she not know that?
If you hit a cat, or drive over a speed bump, you'd know!

The lady that lost her life was a dear family friend, a wonderful loving person, as well as a true Christian. I know she is with our Lord, (talking to my mom forever) I miss her so very much.

Older people should be tested every six months to decide whether they are still competent to drive.

Absolutely. When my family became suspicious that my father (now deceased) was getting to the point where he shouldn't be driving we tried to be responsible and got him to where ever he needed to go ourselves. It was a pain sometimes but something my family members felt we should do to keep our father and the general public safe. Too bad that didn't happen in this instance.

A trial starts with opening statements of the facts to be presented. The arguments are made at the closing of the trial. Anything argumentative in the opening in objectionable.
