I have been to several sites for this accident because the woman in this crash just happens to be a family member that I love dearly. Freak accidents happen and the outcome is not always good. She is not possessed as one person's comment suggested. My heart goes out to the man's family that had the great loss but Linda's family is not without suffering. She is going to have to live with this the rest of her life and as she heals from the crash herself. The comments about her needing prison and how the ones commenting feel that she was totally in the wrong is bogus. Let the investigation determine what happened. No one is perfect and those of us without sin cast the first stone. I'm positive there will be no stone casting. And as for Mr. "proof positive, women and driving don't mix" he can keep his sexist remarks to himself. Women are at fault in fewer crashs than men are. Do some research before making statements. Leave the judging up to God and the investigation to the authorities. God be with the McKenzie family and the Knott's family.

There were so many witnesses to this woman driving bad, including our car.Too bad for her and her family, I'm sure the suffering they have is going to be minimal to what one goes thru in the loss of a life. This was totally preventable, and,yes, accidents do happen, but this wasn't an accident, this was deliberate act of reckless driving. Whatever your friend is telling you, I'm sure is hard to believe, knowing what everyone is saying. Approx. 50 people/cars were affected by this, that's no accident, just crazy driving. makes you wonder what type of a person she truly is, How about that bumper sticker on her car?? That says alot. And I've heard other things about her past, the way she's treated people that trusted her, all which support her actions that day. It all does finally catch up with you.......

No I was not there to see what was happening and I don't know what her bumper sticker says. Would you care to let me know. I just know that the authorities need to investigate and if there is 50 witnesses the better for the investigation. I am just not going to judge. That's God's job. Ididn't post this to be ugly. They are family and I pray for all.

Women driving has nothing to do with this. Men are known to drive like maniacs just for the sake of their gender. So you can stop with this stupid comment at any time now.

Thank you Brenda...
Look, so now we judge people by a bumper sticker? and I dont know who "just Driving that Day" is and she has her right to her own opinion as do I. But I am here to tell you I have know Linda for a long time, she has a heart of gold and would never hurt anyone on purpose. where ever "Just Driving that Day" is getting her info from, is very wrong. I am a close Family member toO this wonderful heartfilled person who I and ANY Many Many people LOVE dearly. Linda and all of us feel for the gentleman that lost his life and his family and our heart goes out to all. But this is something that could happen to anyone.

This could happen to anyone.
Anyone who was driving as recklessly as this woman was.
Slow down.
What the hell is so important that an innocent person had to die so she could get to whatever it was that caused her to speed like that?

It sure sounds like she had something "important" to do, why else would you continue driving so recklessly after just receiving a ticket?

I think all you idots that are bashing women should take a good look at yourselfs in a mirror. 3/4 of you are proabley alcoholics, women abusers and just plain stupid asses who think your somebody. Go to work for a change and get off the wellfare role. Women can do anything a man can do and sometimes better. Thats whats really pussing you off. Sounds like a bunch of women beaters and bashers out there to me.

Apparently women are also very capable of driving like idiots and killing innocent people.

Something for women to be proud of.

Lets see..........
according to you I must be a woman beater, an alcoholic or on the welfare roles to point out that a woman driving recklessly killed an innocent man?
What are you thinking?
Women can be just as stupid as men.
Sorry.
I'am not a woman beater, nor an alcoholic, nor do I receive welfare.

Your right women can and are just as stupid as men. However you were not at the scene of the accident and neither was I. And to set the record straight I have had more stupid ass men cut me off then I have had stupid ass women cut me off. And to top it off they wanted to be first in line just so the Damn fool could turn right in front of several people at the next cornor.
