This is clearly a case of wanting money, she is looking for a lawsuit. How many times did she mention the pain and anguish that she has endured? I lost track halfway through the interview. I have been in an accident much worse than this, and I WASNT taken away in an ambulance. Nor do I have emotional scars.......... I would hate to see this woman if she was in a major traffic accident!

If Mrs. Rau reporting this news stop one person from leaving after an accident. THANK YOU. It time to set the record straight about what Aburg did to her, her family and how much damage to other. Why didn't the news report that someone had to use an ambulance last week I wonder why? It took someone to stand up. We hope the best for the Rau family.

Drama queens galore. If this woman had to face real danger she would melt. Poor poor pitiful me. Give me a break. Just another case of over use of an ambulance. Give the woman an aspirin and a tissue and she will be fine.

I doubt if this women was even hurt in the accident.
All she is worried about is a huge lawsuit, and a large amount of money
I hope the lawyers can see through her way of thinking !!!

I will have to agree. She has a very light scratch on the bumper of her KIA "Killed-In-Action" Sedona
There is no way she could have been hurt very bad. The lawyers will see through her story.

Wow!! That is one messed up vehicle! Take that baby straight to the scrap yard. That car had to be going what...... at least 5-8 mph when it hit her. When I got through watching this I thought I was taking a training course on how to "try and steal money and get away with it". Lady you got bumped get over it. Loudest crash really? Are you almost deaf? I agree someone here only trying to get money.

Here's the deal....It probably was very scary to get bumped hard...and we all would have been pissed off/angry if the person left, but news interview? Not so much

So was she wearing her seat belt?!? By the looks of the damage, there is no way one could receive so many injuries from a fender bender! And she was complaining about next pain, but in the video she is shaking her neck back and forth just fine! Hmmmmmmmmm.....People are so sue happy anymore!

It doesn't matter whether or not she has a little damage to her car and minor aches and pains or whether her car was totaled and she spent a week in the hospital. The point that Rau is making is that the woman in the car (Aberg) was driving with a reckless disregard for the safety of Rau, her children, and everyone else on the road, and she is hurting because of no fault of her own. I would be mad...as should anyone else who read this story and watched the police chase. And just because the news asks you for an interview and you give your honest opinion about how you are feeling, does not mean that you are wanting a lawsuit. However, for her sake, I hope that the crazy driver did have insurance so that she can at least be compensated for her vehicle damage.
