There is nothing that the courts can do to her that would beat what I am sure she has put herself thru since the crash. I don't know the whole story..but she lost her daughter at her own hands. What can possibly be the use in punishing her more that that?

Three people have been killed due to Louann Hubbard's driving. She should never be allowed to drive again. We should be concerned about the three (3) ladies who were seriously injured and will never regain their health. Several may never walk or drive due to Louann's driving!

I can agree with not letting her drive again..I am not so sure about the prison time..

I agree, Some thought she may have had a seizure, not sure?

She had methadone in her blood, just not enough to prove more serious charges like homicide. You would think she would have learned her lesson after she killed ANOTHER one of her children years before in a similar single car crash, again, with neither of her children wearing seat belts. Again, she is singularly responsible for 2 of her children being dead. This time she killed another woman in her car, and almost killed 3 people in the car she hit head on.
If this woman drives again, she will kill again.

She is out!!!! Lets hope she is not out on the road again. Anyone that drives with any amount of drugs in their system and kills two people and caused permanent injuries to three others needs to face the punishment which in this case was not long enough."Concerned" doesn't know the whole story. This was the second child she killed in a car accident. It's unfortunate there aren't levels for drugs like there are for alcohol.

You're totally right. I don't know the details of her history or of what came of the accidents that killed her children.
My parents were on the scene of the crash on Boardman. They were on their way to my house and came on it just after it happened. They did what they could and showed up here covered in blood and shaken to their core. My dad said he saw her heart break in front of his eyes, which prompted my initial comment.
I didn't know about another accident and another death of a child.
You said she is out, did she get prison time? What were the charges?
I'm not sure, but I thought causing a fatal accident while under an influence was a 15 year offense in MI.
