I've known Lynn since I was born, she was a wonderful person and will be greatly missed. She always treated my family with compassion and respect which is rare for an employer these days. My thoughts and good wishes go out to her family and loved ones.

What is wrong with identifying the other driver here? My good friend Kristen Nibert had a bad wreck a few weeks ago, was in critical condition and it was public knowledge ASAP as it usually is. Don't know why the hush hush order is in place. Yeah the elderly lady died but uaually it's not kept private. With that being said, glad the other driver is going to be ok.

Heard the young girl was texting and driving and that's what caused the crash. If so she will face charges. So sad that this happened. My thoughts and prayers go out to both families.

Just because you "heard" this does not make it fact. You people are like wolves preying on people and snatching up the smallest little tidbit. So sad

I hope and pray that a text message wasn't what took this poor lady's life. But unfortunately I have "heard" this from more than one person with quite a few being very reliable. With that being said pray for the young girl because she knows whether she was texting at the time of the accident and with that she has to live with. And there is no doubt that she is not only hurting physically but also mentally.

If those of you who are roasting Cassandra will look to the top of this "topix" it says: MASON COUNTY WOMAN DIES AFTER WRECK. That would be Lynn Smith Durst, not Cassandra.
In memory of Lynn Smith Durst and in respect for her family & friends, I am asking you to leave this link to them to use as they desire. Since I agree with JQP that this in not the place for your comments, I made you your own "topix" and invite you to go to
http://www.topix.com/forum/city/point-pleasan...
and continue your comments.
Hmmm. The link worked when I first posted. Now it's gone even from the list so I must have done something wrong. Maybe one of you could open a thread? If you let me know, I'll join you there.

RIP, Ms. Lynn. Family & friends you are in my prayers. I know Lynn trusted God, hopefully, you can find His comfort during this desolate time.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
