Uh-oh, a trucker was involved. I'm sure it am not the trucker's fault. It always everyone else's fault.

My heart goes to this woman family and friends, is very sad that this young women died in a terrible accident when she probably have husband and kids to go to, my brother was one of the first people to arrive at the cine as he lives a couple blocks from the accident, he was very sad and upset as there was nothing they can do to save her life, he said that he will never forget this terrible accident, god bless her soul.

I knew her,She has one daughter and grandchild, no husband, but a boyfriend. She was wearing a broken seatbelt that she used a bungy cord to fix! Very sad would not wish this on anyone..My thought was she might have been Texting while driving...?

once again im terribly sorry that this happened
I am the womans brother and also a trucker, if you are really the drivers employer? I would greatly appreciate the drivers name phone and or address in order to reach out to him in any way possible. E-Mail me at raidermatt69@yahoo.com

How can you people make such insensitive comments? "Uh-oh, a trucker was involved. I'm sure it am not the trucker's fault. It always everyone else's fault." This truck driver will live with the knowledge that a young woman was killed from this day forth, and we don't yet know who's fault it is.
"My thought was she might have been Texting while driving...?" Why would you think this? Do you know personally that this is a fact?
" i am only able to assume that she was at fault" When you assume you make an ass out of you and me. Wait for the facts.

time will tell the truth will come out. She was a friend of mine, since I was 12.Miss her so very much. Hi Matt. Cannot believe the ignoramous comments on here.Whether she was "texting" like some of you think, has no bearing. Like to know who got tht supposed text.It will be on record. A big rig is a helluva thing to manuever.. if she was in the wrong at the time ( texting)he could have f*ing honked his horn to get her attention.You remember the horns on trucks right? Maybe it was too much meth on the truck drivers part "Truth"... yeah I 've known alot of them too. And no most of them are NOT safe drivers. The majority of them where I live can't read, write, much less speak english.Like I said time and a thourough investigation will bring out the truth.

She was my wonderful, fun loving cousin. While our family was far away from her for so long we had recently regained contact through a social networking site. She was a such an encouragement to me and made me smile. We love and miss you dearly. And as for the negative comments about who was at fault and who wasn't it doesn't matter at this point in time. What matters now is that she is gone and her family is missing her. Maybe after we are able to heal will the truth about what happened really matter...maybe, maybe not. All I care about at this point is that a beautiful person was taken from us and that she is dearly missed. To her family in CA our prayers are with you.

Chelle your a moron you think honking would of solved it all. don't trains have one of the loudest horns made but stupid people ignore them also and get flattened. and trains don't jump off tracks and hit someone and then jump back on but everyone stll wants to place blame on the railroad. morons ignore all warnings and are distracted will driving. so next time you want to make a stupid comment think before you type.

Really? The fact that you think name calling is appropriate here tells me alot about you as a person. Think you should your own advice.

The trucks cut through Lake LA and drive dangerously and aggresively to shave a few miles on their route beteen 138 west and 138 east. Now someone has been killed.

Truckers are no longer welcome in Lake LA. Rigs cutting through the town may face problems with local residents. Go around on the 138.

You have been warned.

Wow, trux sux speaks for the residents, county, and transport authorities.

I guess no more gas, food supplies, firetrucks, and other truck related business can pass through Lake La

I agree with you TRUX SUX

Plus no more vehicles can pass though Lake LA too.

God Bless her children and grand child, She will be missed very much. It realy does not matter whos fault this accident was, I know that this truck driver will NEVER forget what happened, he/she will be in prisioned forever, God Bless that truck driver. People need to remember an accident is exactly that, NO ONE gets up in the morning and sets out to have an accident......! To the trucker

dont blame someone or something if you don't know the fact, if you feel this way just send this simple message SLOW DOWN. I live there and guess what drivers of cars are just as dangerous!! they think they are driving in a video game so get a clue and don't make threats on my behalf!!!
