Please show some respect. I saw this accident happen right in front of my eyes tonight, it was absolutely horrifying. I can't get the images out of my head and am still shaking. Someone lost a mother, sister or daughter tonight. I'm so sorry for her family's loss, I hope she did not suffer and may she rest in peace.

This is very sad. I was on the road tonight shortly before this crash and there was just really weird driving going on. People speeding, swerving between lanes, sudden slow-downs... lots of near misses.

I'm very sorry for this woman's loved ones and hope it was quick and painless for her.

I also was witness just moments after. Seeing the man who was waving down the CHP officer who was running at full sprint to the scene and hearing him say, "shes gone" in a calm but shocked voice. Hearing this I thought she was still in the vehicle. But only a couple yards from the man waving and directing traffic was a gruesome figure that lay in an unnatural and contorted position. There was a girl on her cellphone. "she's dead, she's dead".
It puts a sour and heavy feeling in ones stomach. Its a strange feeling, when you see a body that has absolutely no life in it but just moments ago was full and the warmth her body creates is slowly turning cold.

I am extremely relieved to hear this was the only casualty. If you saw the accident scene you would have thought others had a similar fate.
I prayed for the soul/s that have lost, and were lost last night.

Also, we only look as childish as the people who write ignorant things when we reply to their stupidity.

My heart goes out to the family.

Way to be childish.

I feel very sorry for this woman who died in such a preventable manner. However I feel worse for the innocent bystanders who had to witness such a horrific accident, that again was preventable.

Thanks for posting these very memorable words Hans.

My condolences to the friends and family of the deceased and my sympathies also to those like you who witnessed this horrific event.

An event like this makes me aware that I must appreciate each and every moment of life.

13 of 28 posts removed. Is the IJ doing this or Topix? The article doesn't say anything about the cause of this terrible tragedy. To those that say it doesn't matter, well it does. Driving is a very serious responsibility, not only to one's self, but to all others on the road. If this woman was driving while distracted or impaired, it doesn't diminish the value of her life or minimize the tragedy, but - well you all see where I'm going. Maybe this horrible incident will get all of us to be more considerate of others, both on and off the road.

Very sad news. My condolences to the family and friends. I know Ross is a tight-nit community.

My condolences to the other driver(s) who may have accidentally hit the woman on the freeway after the initial crash. That could be a horrifying event to live with.

I've been one of first at a fatal accident and directed traffic until the police arrived. Not an easy scene.

This is so sad. A simple click of her seatbelt would have made all the difference. Please people, wear your seat belts, every time you start your vehicle.

A young woman, so incredibly sad! I thought maybe it was an older person that had a heart attack, or health issue and lost control. The idea that she wasn't wearing a seat belt makes this even sadder since she may still be here today if she had. My heart goes out to her family and friends.

We were coming home on south bound. Saw a police car weaving. Seconds later an ambulance came racing down the street.
Slowing down the traffic. Marin city exit to the left was a body covered in a white sheet with her hand sticking out. It looked like she was ejected over the wall. It was a horrifying crash.
I prayed as we detored around and took the marin city exit.
My prayers go out to the family.
