I hope the State Patrol sorts this out soon and that Ms Happe recovers quickly.

Also zinghopper, I hope the woman recovers or at least is upgraded to better health because she may be able to tell them what happned. And I do hope the other driver suffers no other effects from this crash.
Fair enough, Cindy

do you morons who insist upon posting nasty comments on stories like this ever stop to think about family and friends of the person involved???? do you really feel SOOO much better about things after you do that???? More proof of how nasty our society is becoming. No one knows what happened yet, so stop with the unkind remarks. My thoughts go out to her and her family.
Do you morons who insist on critisizing what other posters have to say in their thoughts on a news item think God has given you permission to set yourself above them? You have no compunction about expessing your feelings, why should they not have the same privelege?

So why does your criticism of Cindy not make you the moron? You are complaining about someone doing something by doing the exact thing you are complaining about.

God speed to those involved in this ACCIDENT. I wish you a speedy recovery. And than you Cindy for your humanity, something missing here by many.

<quoted text>Aww guess I'm mean. It's called responsibility. The de-ti-dee ran the light, smashed her car and landed her self in the hospital. Not to mention the damage caused to the other car because of her stupidity. Red light means stop people. I have no compassion for stupid. In fact, people such as this should be sterilized. She's lucky she didn't kill anyone with her poor judgement. I am the jerk for telling it how it is. Ask a State Patrol Officer how crappy people drive... so all of you uber compassionate people take a big sweet suck.
I'll remember that when we hear of your accident. How do you people live with such anger and hatred? Amazing!

I was stopped at that intersection one day and the light turned green - for some reason I hesitated - dang good thing.......bonehead ran the read light on 55 - never even hit the brakes. Wasn't on phone either - just obivously didn't have his mind on the road...... Maybe they need those flashing lights or something -

I can't believe what I'm reading! I am distantly aquainted with members of her family & they are devastated. No one knows what happened, but she has always been conscientious in all aspects of her life - everyone makes mistakes & this one may cost her her life! How about a little sensitivity people??!! I hope that your families never have to go through something like this. Just when did it become ok to be nasty & judgemental about a situation in which you have no real knowledge or involvement?

My thoughts and sincerest prayers go out to her family and friends and especially to her two small children. Sheila was definitely a shining star to anyone who knew her. She was smart, funny, one of the kindest people I have ever met, and I feel blessed for having known her. Unfortunately it has been reported that Sheila no longer has brain activity and that she will not recover from this tragic accident. I thank God for the couple of years I had that I was blessed to know her. I wish those who have made such hurtful and uniformed comments could have known her for the person that she was.

In Loving Memory, a very good post. If only we could all be as perfect as the people who have posted vile comments about this situation. Apparently they have never, ever, ever done ANYTHING wrong in their life and can make hateful comments about a person, or situation, they know nothing more about than what was written in the PiPress. The woman involved in the accident was related to one of my best friends and the family is devastated. What is to be gained by writing nasty comments about her profession, or what may or may not have happened? Nothing.

Obuma - at this point no one knows for sure what happened. There may have been a medical incident or who knows what else. Apparently your mother never told you to keep your mouth shut unless you had something nice to say. I'm tired of people like you who have nothing constructive to say.

Sure hope the father (if there is one) will have an easy time living with what his wife did. Don't cross the street until the light turns green.

You all act as if she did this on purpose. And this comment insinuates that somehow her family is to blame. How do we know that there wasn't a medical problem? By the personal accounts on this message board, she was a responsible member of society. Even if there wasn't a medical issue, everyone makes mistakes - this one cost her her life! I'm sure her family is thankful that no one else was injured.
