Sonoma State University Student Kaitlyn Dunaway is a Child Killer. Kaitlyn was driving illegally, using her cell phone while driving, when she struck and killed a 2 year old girl. Everyday I see dozens of young women using their cell phones while driving. It is dangerous and illegal. Because Kaitlyn is an ignorant b--ch who thumbed her nose at the law, an innocent little girl is dead.

I agree 100%. Has she ever been charged?? Or did they let her off because she was the "all empire volleyball player of the year"? My guess it's the latter.

What a waste of life she is

F**k both of you people. You have no idea who she is. For you to say such horrible things about such a tragic accident makes both of you the waste of lives here.

It was not an accident. This poor child was killed because Kaitlyn committed an illegal crime. Driving while using a cell phone. It is both dangerous and illegal.

Its funny how people dont even know what they are talking about. Have the facts to the case even come out yet. They never actually stated whether she was on the cell phone or not. Have you seen the street that this occurred on? Do you even know if it was safe for then=m to cross? What were the conditions? Can people get facts together before making ignorant statements?

Dunnaway was TEXTING while driving. Her carelessness and selfishness and complete disregard for other people's safety resulted in a child killed and a critically injured mother. Kaitlyn Dunnaway has destored lives. What was so freaking important that she had to text while driving? Hoping she serves time in prison.

Agreed. This was no accident. And those that call it that are just friends/family of the killer, Kaitlyn Dunnaway.

"tragic accident"? No. This was a woman texting while driving. She knew is was wrong, knew it was illegal, but who gives a hoot, as long as she can send texts while driving. What's more important? Certainly not someone else's life! An accident? No.

Wow...it wasn't an accident???? Are you serious? So she purposely meant to hit that kid? Look what she was doing was illegal obviously, but to say because she was committing an illegal activity while driving therefore its not an accident is ludicrous....I'm not defending Kaitlyn, but this was an ACCIDENT...she did not mean to hit the child...She F***** up, thats that and she will have to pay the price for her accident which COULD HAVE been avoided.

It's NOT an accident. Duh. She was doing something illegal and reckless,and she she knowingly endangered other people. That's why it's not an accident. Maybe if she'd slammed into you or one of your loved ones you'd see it differently. There's a difference between a REAL accident, and one where you're doing something illegal and kill someone. But folks like you don't get it.

Wrong Timothy. This was NOT an accident. Kaitlyn knew it was dangerous and illegal to text and drive. Her disregard for the law and safety of others killed a little girl. Her illegal and reckless actions killed a little girl. Kaitlyn thumbed her nose at the law. The laws are put in place for a reason. Kaitlyn was texting while driving (not paying attention) and driving at an unsafe speed, hitting two pedestrians who were crossing the street legally in a crosswalk. If Kaitlyn had killed your child I guarantee you'd be singing a whole different tune.

OF course he would. When something this happens the supporters of the killer come out of the woodwork. Maybe he's a relative or friend of Dunaway's. They'll do anything, say anything to try to justify in their heads that their "girl" (kaitlyn) isn't a killer, just someone who "made a mistake anyone of us could have made".

Was it safe for them to cross? Let's see... there was a car coming that hadn't stopped and apparently had no intention of stopping. No, I'd say it wasn't safe. I'm sad for the family and the loss of this little girl. I'd also like to see pedestrians pay a little more attention and not take the "right-of-way" concept so seriously.

well said. it was poor judgement with a horrible outcome. it doesn't make it ok, but it doesn't make it intentional either.

Blaming the victims? Wow. Just wow.

No, but nor is it an accident. This was no accident. It was blatant disregard of the law. Hopefully time in jail (though not long enough) will give your volleyball star time to think about this.

The misdemeanor charge is bulls**t however. Check online like SFGate for more details on the looming court date. The punishment should be akin to drunk driving and her driving privileges revoked (permanently?) along with mandatory time behind bars. No matter what or who you blame, the driver knowingly put lives in danger while operating a dangerous vehicle impaired. Emphasize knowingly. Emphasize impaired. Sounds a lot like a DUI description and the punishment should reflect it. A little girl is dead and a grieving family forever anguished. There is both a legal, rational argument as well as an emotional one.

Kaitlyn should have a Felony Manslaughter...no doubt. She made a tragic error in judgment...but you can't take this back. no sorry is enough. She is probably a great young lady...but as anyone else, who makes a bad judgment...there is a price for causing someone to be deceased.

you can understand someone's actions and even forgive their actions while at the same time seeking justice for a crime. this young woman chose to text AND speed while driving where there could be people walking. it was a choice. am sure she didn't wake up and decide to run over a mother and her daughter that day. am sure she is sorry. but it doesn't help society to say "what's done is done" when "what's done" is a death that was caused by recklessness. if the young woman had chosen to get drunk and then drive it would be a felony, but somehow because it was texting and because she's a "nice young woman" whose "family is hurting" she shouldn't face the same justice as someone who doesn't have the same circumstances.

This was an accident, this young women had NO intention of hurting this family or anyone. I think of how often I have driven that same street; I am focused on the light ahead. I think about how often pedestrians unconsciously walk across the street, because they have the right away. I say all this knowing I have not lost my baby daughter, but I feel this was a horrible accident. This young women should do community service, twice a month give speeches to high school students and college students. This unfortunate incident has affected my cell phone.
