They failed to mention there was a torrential rain that occured when she lost control. Highway patrol recomends never using your cruise control in a torrential rain as it will cause you to hydroplane and the car will automatically speed up causing you to lose control. In this case it was a matter of not being able to see through the rain.How do you lose control of a car on a straight stretch of highway with no inclement weather?

There was torrential rain, the driver lost control and hydroplaned. This info has been given by the family who lost their loved one. People shouldn't be so quick to judge. Love and Live each day to the fullest as you'll never know if it's your last. Our hearts and prayers are with all families involved.

Every news resource (Cincinnati and Columbus) I read said it was pouring. But I agree, it doesn't really matter. It is all sad still the same.

Theres nothing there I would care to die for, this shopping spree thing reminds me of the death of the pastor Mary Ellen Waters lady who preached at one time around where the 2 women lived their whole lives.

As a member of the Whatley family, I would like to let you all know, that it was indeed raining very bad. To those who posted supporting comments our family thanks you, and to those who posted hateful and rude comments, get a life. Lynne was an amazing woman and she is missed very much.
