This is every parent's nightmare. I pray for her family. Everyone please! Tell your "grown" kids, too, that there is nothing worth driving to in this weather! Just stay somewhere safe until the roads are clear!

I knew Lyndsy and this just breaks my heart. She was one of my little sisters close friends. Heaven is lucky to gain an angel like her. R.I.P. Lyndsay

So sad, We have a 17 year old daughter, after her cousin was killed in an accident, I decided that when she started driving, we would spend extra time in teaching her. Spent a little more at street smarts for drivers ed., but as worth it compared to the program offered at school. On her 16th birthday, I gave her a 3/4 ton 4x4 w/ 35 inch tires. She sure gets some looks, but I know she is safe, sorry for all the other people driving their Prius's. 40 m.p.g isn't worth being crushed by a larger vehicle. Nothing is worth dying for, stay home, do-not travel in bad weather, she would have been late, but better than not at all. When will people learn, Cars kill more people in America than anything else. My Heart goes out to her Family and friends.

My prayers are with the loved ones, I wish the media would wait just a tad longer before they start posting the name of the accident victims........12 hours is not long enough to notify all her loved ones!
And there is no training in the world to teach someone how to "control" a LOSS OF CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE in this nasty weather......
God bless this family..........

A big car does not mean that a bad driver is going to be any safer than if they drove a smaller car. Cars don't kill people, they aren't Decepticons. It's usually a bad driver, or bad weather, or a combo of the two that kill people.

You are seriously distrubed. Why would you say something like that. Do you even know this person. I do and she is far from a stupid person. She was a wonderful person and you are a terrible person for saying something like that.

I also drive a big truck, and if you run a red light and I T-bone you you're dead. I was merely stating that I don't worry about her driving, she is very, very, careful and responsible. She knows she's driving a 6,500 lb death machine. And acts accordingly. I worry about the idiots out there that don't pay attention. My truck is huge nearly 8,000 pounds, 8 inches of lift w/ 37 inch tires, and I still get cut off, and pulled out in front of. There is no such thing as an accident, stuff just don't happen for absolutely no reason. Everyone needs to pay attention, get off the cell phone, don't goof with the I-POD, and don't drive in bad weather. Once again what her family has to deal with would be my worst nightmare, but I have absolutely done everything possible to assure her safety. There's no guarantees of course, but not driving on the freeway during bad weather is so simple. My daughter went to work today, she went all the way down park ave, sure it's rough, sure it takes longer, but chances of a fatality are extremely low. Unless your riding a motorcycle and get run over by a couple a mexican criminals. But if they hit my baby girl's truck they'd be the ones in the ground. Be pro-active don't be afraid to scare your children, having to attend their funeral will make you feel a whole lot worse, trust me I know. Our son died of M.D. even though he was sick his entire life, and we knew he would never live past 18 or so, when he past it did not help. I'm probably over protective as a result. But I cherish every second of every day, because I learned that no matter how long you live, it's about what you do while you are here.....

please flag Moonraker3000's post 'report abuse', and lets get if off the page, as well as even the quotes of it

this is not time for that sort of thing

our family went through this years ago, and the last thing this family needs is that kind of foolishness

prayers for her and her family

She never spoke mean about or to anyone. Her heart was kind and her spirit was free. Live, laugh, and love was something she naturally installed into people. She walked amongst us all with a smile on her face. Not asking for anything but a good conversation and a laugh. As a friend and a co-worker I was very blessed to have her in my life. Take each day and live it to the fullest. Endless prayers for the family and friends.
Please have respect for those who have lost and keep the rude comments to yourself. One day you too will lose someone and the feelings will be mutual.
