This is so sad. The same girl is quoted in last weeks article about Long Trail graduation. So young, so bright, even graduating a year early. My heart goes out to her family and friends. Life is not easy.

Ellen, you were such an inspiration to all of us students. May you sing with the angels now, my friend.
With love.

Real Vermonter, she was on her way home from a chiropractor appointment. Because of the rain, she slid into the other lane and crashed into the incoming car.

wow my thoughts go out to the family
A Better Place

Shes in a better place right now
Than shes ever been before;
All pain is gone; shes now at rest;
Nothing troubles her anymore.

Its we who feel the burden of
Our sadness and our grief;.
We have to cry, to mourn our loss,
Before we get relief.

We know well reconnect with her
At the end of each lifes road;
Well see her cherished face again
When we release our earthly load.

The reason I asked was because the story just said crossed into the northbound lane and that the police are seeking more information about the crash! They usually don't do that when a cause has been determined! Which law enforcement agency did you hear from that it was determined that she slid because of the rain?

I saw this on the Vermont Stete Police website!

RV, I am surprised, you haven't insinuated the young lady was under the influence of marijuana. Or maybe you are since you are questioning that the slippery roads caused the crash?

My deepest sympathies go out to her family and friends.

Shaft/Rv, there is nothing to say about this tragedy that could be constructive. I was merely questioning you.

Again, my sympathies go out to the parents.
No one should outlive their child.
