Burlington Street is not a curved street. It is completely straight all the way to Harlem Ave.

I find it hard to believe that she did not know the area considering she drove through Riverside on the way to and from school everyday. There were also three other people in the car she could have asked directions from and probably one of them had a cell phone they could have used to call if they really got lost.

After crossing the curb and a tree ripping the car in half the front of the car traveled another 100 feet. Based on that the car must have been exceeding the posted 25 mph speed limit.

I'm sick of these IDIOTS. She should get life in prison.
