My wife and I saw the accident scene Saturday around 1030am on our way to Soboba Casino. We could tell by the accident wreckage there had to be at least one fatality. Gilman Springs road is dangerous and even on our way back home some car from opposing lane came about 3 feet into our lane before correcting themself. Gilman Springs Rd is a pretty drive but I think I`ll take the Romona Express Way to Soboba Casino from now on.

Very sad. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family, students, and school faculty.

That is so sad. May she rest in peace and perpetual light shine upon her. The Angels welcome her into the Paradise that all good teachers deserve. She will be missed.
My condolences to her friends, family and students.

Ms. Clark was an excellent teacher to my son. she and my husband also employed by the district stayed friends even as my son graduated from school. she always wanted to know what he was up to and wanted to see pictures. What a great loss this will be to Mayflower elementry. Our condolences to the staff of Mayflower; her students both old and current and mostly to her family.

What a tragic loss for Monrovia School District and all that know and love Maggie Clark. She held a special place in my daughters heart. She was her first grade teacher back in 98/99 at Mayflower school and I have to say one of her "favorites". My daughter is graduating this year and nominated Ms Clark to be an Honor Guard for the graduation ceremonies for Monrovia High School. I will watch my daughter graduate high school this year knowing that Mrs Clark helped her get there and that Mrs Clark will be watch over her as she accepts her diploma. We love you and you will forever be in our hearts and a loving memory to my daughter.

Mrs. Clark was a great teacher and role model. Mrs. Clark has taught at Mayflower since the mid 80's. Mrs. Clark was a bilingual aid before she was a teacher. She was Cuban with very long dark hair, pale skin, and a soft and caring attitude. Mrs. Clark cared very much for her students and dedicated her life to them.

Maggie was my daughter's kindergarten teacher. She was amazing. She was kind and sweet, but firm. My daughter loved her completely. She was the perfect teacher. She was constantly taking pictures and posting them for us parents, so we could see what was going on the classroom, and feel a part of it. She also became a dear friend, and I turned to her for advice even after my daughter moved on from her class. She was caring and made deep connections with her students and parents. I'm glad to have been her friend. We will miss her deeply. Our hearts go out to her husband and family, as well as her current students and fellow teachers. We love you, Maggie - and will miss you. Thanks for all you did. You made an impact on so many lives.

Miss Clark was a wonderful teacher. Even I did all that hard work for her. We all love her very much. I haved known her for the past 3 years when she was here at Mayflower. I am glad to have her as my little sister's teacher. I wanna thank all the Mayflower teachers for supporting her including the Room 1 parents. She will be in our hearts.

I'm so happy to hear that Maggie was able to make such a positive impact on so many young lives during her short time here. I unfortunately was the main witness to this accident and was horrified. I'm seeking counceling for it and part of overcoming my grief was learning about the woman I was too late to help. It's a tragedy that this happened to her. In the wrong place at the wrong time and there's nothing she could've done. Bless her.

So sorry you had to witness this horrible accident. May you find comfort in knowing that you tried to help. The world needs people like you--people who care and are willing to help others. May your grief diminish and your life be blessed.

A sad story, and my condolences to her family. I would like to know however what's happening to the murderer who crossed the double line and caused the crash? Arrested? Injured? What.

Ms. Clark was my 3rd grade teacher in 1988. I was in her very first class. She left a life time impression on me. She was my favorite teacher, ever. Teachers like her are hard to find and there will be a hole left at Mayflower.
May she rest in peace.

I am Maggie's cousin, I live in Florida and her husband was here on business, when he received the call that Maggie was in an accident. He rushed on the next plane to LA.
I find great comfort in reading such beautiful things from everyone. I am at peace that in her short life she was able to touch so many in such a positive way. I love her very much and I will miss her dearly. Maggie rest in peace.
