I'd love to live up north like she did, that's where I came from. Not this stupid suburban and city living. I absolutely hate it. If I want to talk to someone or look at someone or vise versa, I don't want to just look up and see eight houses with people out in the yard. My dream is when I go for a walk, I am indeed alone and don't cross the paths of folks on bicycles, people walking their stupid little out-of-control mutts. I don't want to be waved at my sixteen neighbors and have to smile when I want to give them the fin$$$$$$. Just me, sob, sob.

If she was on 3 heading for the lake she probably went to sleep OR had a long discussion on the phone. Vehicles never make a good phone booth.

She was lucky to not hit a tree on the way to the lake.

My thought and prayers go out to her family and friends for the tragic loss of what sounds like a very loving and caring person.

Dude, she died from going into the lake. You say she was lucky not to hit a tree?? I don't see the luck, anyone else?? Huh?
Perhaps the tree would have stopped her.

The driver was a lover of trees, more specifically the White Pine tree.

IF she hit a tree it may have been a White Pine tree and in the drivers mind that would have been a real tragedy.

RIP driver.

The National Highway Safety Administration estimates that 25 percent of all accidents are the result of driver distraction. Dogs riding loose in cars can quickly become a dangerous distraction as they roam about the vehicle. In the event of an accident, unrestrained animals pose several potentially life-threatening problems. The non-profit group Bark Buckle Up, estimates that during a collision at 40 mph, a 25lb dog can cause an impact equal to 1,000 lbs of force. A 60 lb dog at just 35 mph represents 2,700 lbs of force. If the unrestrained dog were to hit a person, it could easily break the person's neck. Likewise, hitting or crashing through the car windshield with that much force would more than likely kill the dog.
In less extreme examples, unrestrained dogs can sustain injuries from flying off seats and hitting other parts of the vehicle or being struck by the air bag, which deploys at approximately 200 mph. Assuming your pet survives the initial accident, you now must deal with a panicked animal prone to unpredictable, even aggressive behavior. As a result, injured human passengers must wait longer to receive potentially life-saving care. Many years ago, I heard a story about an elderly gentleman, travelling with his unsecured dogs, who had a heart attack and crashed his vehicle. His panicked dogs barked and lunged aggressively at the doors and windows, keeping paramedics at bay for so long, that the gentleman died before paramedics could get to him.
Even if your dogs aren't aggressively challenging rescue personnel, they're at risk for bolting out of the vehicle as soon as the doors are opened. Now your dogs are at risk of running loose, getting lost and potentially causing another accident as drivers swerve to avoid hitting them in the street.
