Prescription medicine users should read and adhere to the label.
DO NOT DRIVE!
Due to her bad choice that morning of driving while
medicated she in one single moment caused a crash
so tragic and unforgiveable as two lives are now lost. Please keep the family in your prayers to
get through this tragedy. thank you

It's easy to sit there and condemn a person who was involved in such a tragedy without knowing all of the facts. Here's a fact, seatbelts save lives in the case of an accident.

Heres one for you, the victim was my niece's daughter and, she was 9 months pregnant and the seat belt would not fit around her. Where's your

I am the mother of Chrissy and the Grandmother of Taylor Rose. My daughter was wearing her seat belt. My granddaughter died from bleeding to death when the placenta seperated. My daughter got out of the van through the side door and collapsed. CPR was performed 3 times and she got 17 units of blood at the first hospital not to mention how much she bleed at DMH. So Mister Anonomous you need to get your infomation correct. Miss, oh wait she got married 6 days after she killed my grandaughter and my daughter was fighting for her life. Mrs. Kristy was all over the road before this crash happened and had NO INSURANCE!

To the Wilmont person who has on feelings.... how can you defend someone who knowingly got behind a wheel of a car under meds? Would it be any different if she were drunk? Bottom line is she killed 2 people! I wish I could send her a picture of Chrissy and her baby in the casket... as a matter of fact I'd like to send one to you too. Even if she wasnt wearing her seatbelt I doubt the outcome would have been different. You really need to think before you post something like that and get YOUR facts right.
RIP Chrissy

So happy to hear this news!!!Can't believe they still consider Taylor Rose a fetus though!That is AWFUL!!For everyone who says DON'T Drive while taking prescription medication though,THAT isn't the problem,it is people who take them and pay NO attention to what the meds do to them!There ARE pain meds that when taken as prescribed ARE safe,but the patient needs to be smart enough to know the difference and take them responsibly!To load up and head down the road is just crazy and I hope they throw the book at her-can you push for them to change the way they are looking at Taylor?God,I hope so!!Wish you the best.

As the mother of an only child I cannot even begin to fathom the the horror and heartbreak that the Vinnacombs have gone through to not only lose their only child but also their first grand daughter.
The only good news in this senseless tragedy is that the person that caused it has been arrested and I hope she is punished to the fullest extent of the law.

So is there anything we can do to change their minds of considering the baby a fetus? maybe send them pictures of that beautiful baby?

If there IS anything we can do-consider me IN!!!I cannot believe a FULL TERM baby can POSSIBLY be considered a FETUS!W.T.H.is wrong with the people deciding how to charge this thoughtless murderer?She has kids of her OWN that are now left without their mom just because of a selfish,stupid accident that would have left everyone involved,still happy and going on NORMALLY with their lives,but instead she made that ONE fatal error,but hey at least HER kids can still visit THEIR mom-Chrissy's boys aren't so lucky so they better be able to put her away for LIFE without parole or I pity her when they let her out!It is a VERY small community!She won't find ANYONE that will give her a job if she ever DOES see daylight again,not to mention friends-the car she was driving belonged to a friend-with friends like HER who needs enemies?!!God Bless the entire Vinnacombe family and know you have MANY people backing you and hoping the best for you all.Stay strong!

Kristy O'Meara was charged with "Gross Careless and Negligent Operation with Death Resulting" and will be arraigned at Orange County District Court in Chelsea, VT on Wed. June 6th, 2007! I will be completely appalled if this piece of garbage gets off without having to do any time behind bars. She was using a friends car due to the fact that just weeks prior to taking my nieces lives, she crashed her own vehicle!! Vermont needs to set a precedence here! She should be charged with the two lives she took! She had no consideration AT ALL for anyone on that road - witnesses said she was all over the road even prior to hitting Chrissy & Taylor! She should NOT have been the one to walk away from this! She has taken so much from our family and left us with such loss & heartbreak

PLEASE let us know how much time she got at the arraignment today!Probably NOT LONG ENOUGH!!You are VERY right-Vermont DOES need to set a precedent with this case-it is ludacris that anyone can get behind the wheel and KILL someone and have hardly any IF ANY consequences for their actions(we know of another case in which a 19 year old was driving and killed his passenger and was LAUGHING about it because he KILLED someone but got NO TIME!!)It disgusts me to no end that these things happen all around us but the minds of our lawmakers are already usually made up so there is no way to change the outcome as in Chrissy's case(she should be charged with killing 2 people NOT 1!-NO driver should be able to just walk away and go on with their life as if nothing ever happened when they destroy the lives of everyone close to the person they KILLED!!It is a disgrace to our state and it needs to stop now before it continues with more lives lost!!Our family hopes that your family can find some peace when the court sessions are over.We hope the court offers your family at least SOME sense of justice.Wish you the best!Our thoughts are with you-especially today!

Truly this was a trajedy, but blaming someone isn't going to help anyone. Life and death come from the hand of the LORD JESUS CHRIST only. He chooses the circumstances he uses. we do not understand it but we can trust that he knows best. I am truly sorry for your lost,but please allow the LORD to turn it to a blessing.

I can see why you are annonymous.You should be absolutely ashamed of yourself to even think that the deaths of an innocent baby and it's mother at the hands of a person that should never have been behind the wheel of a car can be made into a blessing.
It was not God that told Kristi O'Meara to get behind the wheel that day. She made the choice herself and killed two innocent people.
A blessing? I think NOT!
