Woman killed Tuesday by suspected DUI driver in Lancaster

LANCASTER – A 42-year-old Lancaster woman was killed early Tuesday morning in a collision with a suspected drunk driver, according to authorities.

The collision occurred at 10th Street West and Avenue L at around 12:54 a.m., said Lancaster Station Spokesman Michael Rust.

“The victim was headed eastbound on Avenue L and she was going to make a left turn onto 10th street west,” Rust said. “As she is waiting to make her left turn, a drunk driver in a large pickup truck was headed southbound on 10th street west and ran into her and killed her instantly.”

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as Angelica Goins-Jones, 42, of Lancaster.

Rust said there was male passenger in the victim’s car. The man suffered major injuries and was taken to Antelope Valley Hospital, Rust said. The status of the passenger’s injuries was not immediately available Tuesday afternoon.

The suspected DUI driver is 28-year-old Jodi Biers. Biers was arrested early Tuesday morning on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and DUI. Her blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit, Rust said.

Biers is being held on $100,000 bail and is due in court Thursday morning.

      Honestly shut the hell up you moron, she’s a nice great person who made a horrible mistake!! She’s not going to get life in prison that’s just not going to happen! The fact she’s even being charged with murder is absolutely ridiculous!! She has such a big heart and is so nice to every single person she has ever met! She risked her life fighting fires in order to protect the homes of you idiots who live in antelope valley! You disrespectful scum!! She’s going to be in jail for several years yes but she’s not a cold hearted evil person, she feels so awful for what she has done and I hope everybody learns from this to never drink and drive! Her life is over and she knows it, you know we don’t need hateful dumbass idiots like you all leaving mean hateful comments on here!! Everybody makes mistakes and have a heart that aches when anybody gets hurt, the pain she has to live with is something none of us will ever understand. Stop wishing her nothing but hurt and pain!!! She will come out of this a stronger person and I know she will do what she can to fix all the damage she has done! I’m wishing her the best and I’m praying that the family is okay and that they too see she is a girl who messed up and is so so so sorry!! Stop with all the hate!!! There’s enough negativity in the world, stop adding to it!!! My boyfriend worked with her on the same crew a couple years ago and everyone had nothing but nice things to say about her, pull your head out of your asses morons of Lancaster and Palmdale, let the family overcome this pain and let her overcome this horrible time in her life.

        I would like to say to you on behalf of the family . No one is wishing Jodi pain or hurt , me myself and my father forgive her, and wish her the best , even though we have lost something so tremendous to our lives. I personally never had any type of feelings towards her at all . I’m only 20 years old ill never get my mother back . But I understand that life is not fair and things happen . Jodi indeed knew better than to get in that car that night but life goes on . And the only way to heal correctly from this incident is to forgive . It’s been a long year and she is getting sentenced soon. No she will not get life but that is not the big picture here . I hope whatever they give her she learns from it and moves past it all . I know I’m a little late on this site here but Ive never seen it . I just googled my moms name and I see this . People arguing about bullshit that doesn’t mean anything to our family . I probably know some of you and I pray you guys never waste time on something so out of your control again . No matter how big or small Jodi and my families hurt varies between each other we are all hurting in some way . I wish her family well . And by the way my father is doing well although he has great injuries that he still is dealing with everyday along with scars. He is walking and talking and that’s good enough for me right now . God bless everyone . Don’t let this type of tragedy consume our lives thoughts and words . Be the bigger person please :)

    What makes me even more mad about defending Jodi (her friends) is not that they are defending her…but they are not even respectful enough to allow those to vent, hurt or be frustrated and grieve. It is more important to them to enable, caress, stroke, help make the problem feel better for themselves than to just let people have a place to vent and get it out. The problem is she could have just plead “GUILTY” because why? Because she is…that would have gone a lot further than how she fled the scene (yes I understand intoxicated decission but who know yeeeee haaa) and on top of that a slap on the other cheek of “Not Guilty”. I bet if this happened to your kid (by your friend on that road) you wouldn’t be saying “it was just an accident” no matter how much of a friend or a nice person she was sober. I’m done with this ignorance. No judge is going to just say “No big deal go about your day sweetheart”. So all this dialogue is pointless. I will however make you a deal Friend Of Jodi’s…I promise to not make a decission (or what you call a mistake) and go out and kill one of your family members on the road tonight and I’ll do it by staying sober or not get behind a wheel if I am not. I bet a million dollars if the tables were turned you would be ripping our heads off. It’s human nature and the process of healing even though it’s still to soon for that.

    Ignorant? Really? I think not. I commend you on your defense of your friend and expressing your opinion. However, let’s place blame where it belongs. Your irresponsible, and just plain stupid, comment has forced me to also respond. Yes…people make mistakes and yes, no one is exempt from that honor. However, I can tell you I can look myself in the mirror each day and tell you that while I make mistakes, none of them willfully and knowingly, would end in gross negligence and murder.

    While I don’t remember Angie, I do know many of my friends are extremely saddened and angry over Jodi’s decision and the subsequent results. I would expect that she is devastated by her actions that night and will remember this the rest of her life. Key words being ‘her life’. She will have a life and if justice is done, it will be a life afforded with shelter, 3 meals a day, friends, human contact, internet, phone, mail, packages and oftentimes, a job. Angie and those that love her will NEVER have that with her again.

    You speak about Jodi’s family and friends, which you are one of. To the co-worker that wrote earlier about the long term problems that Jodi was having…kudos to you for your honesty and straightforwardness in admitting that. Seems that, not only this night, but for many, many years before, Jodi has been battling problems with alcohol. As a friend R, may I ask where were you in all of this? As a friend R, did you help her…did you send her to a program…did you get her to admit and seek help for her alcohol problems? I would do that for a friend if I knew there was a problem.

    Fact is…she was obviously a smart gal and able to tell right from wrong. She knowingly, with intent…got her keys, got in her car and drove that night…and killed someone and has left another in great possibility of dying. She has left a 21 year old girl without her mother and perhaps without a father. This sad girl will finish college, get married, be successful, have a family—all without her mother physically with her.

    Fact is, Jodi may be devastated and she may always carry this with her. Being human, I would hope so. A good person? One with family and friends that love her too? Then shame on you for allowing her and supporting her in a decision to plead ‘not guilty’ to this crime. I’m not religious and don’t live a life guided by God. I believe in forgiveness, but one must earn forgiveness by taking accountability for one’s actions. Despite legal representation, if Jodi was truly sorry for her crime, she would have taken accountability and pleaded ‘GUILTY’, not further insulted Angie’s legacy and family by pleading not guilty. Admitting her mistake and making amends is taking the punishment she deserves.

    Finally, shame on the gatekeepers of this website for deleting the comment by her co-working as ‘inflammatory’. Little do you know that alone will go much further in ‘fanning the flames’ of this group than deleting the comment. Why delete? Bias? A personal gain?

    R…Now you look yourself in the mirror, you ignorant and foolish friend, and ask yourself what you would want people to say to you if this was your mother, daughter, sister, aunt, grandmother…friend? And what would you say to the drunk (but nice) person that killed her?

    • Trish Guinn
      March 16, 2012 at 9:47 pm

      That was a very powerful response above. Very Very well written! TO the point and really there is no escape from any corner of the situation. Being nice has nothing to do with anything. She obviously wasn’t nice enough to not flee the scene or start costing this family more money to make sure this CRIME (last time I checked it was a crime) is answered for. What do you want this family to do? Just hug her and say “No biggie, we will deal with it…go on back to your alcoholic ways and hey by the way…here is our keys to our truck we understand you wrecked yours yesterday while killing our mother/wife/friend etc…”

      I lost a friend (not Angie as I did not know her) but a friend to a drunk driver and he was sorry too. Guess what? It’s been 24 years and I don’t get to tell my dead friend his drunk driver is sorry. So what good is sorry? It’s just really sad this is probably the only thing that will wake your friend up so that it doesn’t happen again. If it wasn’t Angie (And I say this with much sadness) it would have been someone else real soon. This could have been any of us on that road that night. Hey Friend…it could have been you. Wake up call… You are not her friend…THE BOTTLE is her friend. NO more enabling her please.

      I didn’t need to ad to the response above as it was already perfectly laid out…but I needed to get that all off my chest.

      For REAL … You’re just going to put False Allegations out like that and really just throw Jodi under the train. She already has to deal with this situation and you are just trying to make it worth your wild, cause you have personal issues with her. I KNOW WHO THIS IS … and if you are not going to Speak on this Matter in a Real Way… SYFMB! and STOP trying to add Fuel to the Fire with Your False Allegations! Jodi had a clean record (till now). Now she is on a totally different journey. My Heart Truly goes out to Angie’s Family, Friends and Love Ones, a Life Can Not be Replaced! I pray Angie’s family can find it in their hearts at one point to forgive on this Horrible Matter and have a sence of inner peace within. As for Trifflin “FF”… If it ain’t TRUE… STFUB! Just incase… This is NOT Toward any of Angie’s Family, Friends and Love Ones! My Prayers are with You guys, No Disrespect. IT’S STRAIGHT AT TRIFFLIN “FF”… for all that False BS she had posted.

      Adults have the right to make their own decisions as long as it does not affect other people. If a drunk wants to get totally wasted then stay home, sleep it off, DO NOT GO OUT AND DRIVE AND TAKE THE CHANCE OF KILLING AN INNOCENT PERSON. But the problem is, people are not rational when they get drunk and then do go out and drive and take the risk of hurting an innocent person. Groups like MADD I totally support. I am sorry for all the people involved. It is extremely painful to lose a loved one like this. I truly believe we have a responsiblity to ourselves and to those who are around us.

      March 15, 2012 at 8:58 pm

      I can’t believe the ignorance that people have. Let’s just say, for the sake of arguement, that Angie did use all precaution neccessary before she entered that intersection and that Biers didn’t go faster than the speed limit… The fact remains, Angie had the right of way and was legally in the intersection on a green light. Biers, on the other had, had been drinking, got behind the wheel of a vehicle, drove, and ran a RED light. To say she made a mistake or bad decision, is an UNDERSTATEMENT!!! she knew she had been drinking, she willfully got into her vehicle and DROVE. As far as I am concerned, the moment she (or any dumbass) got behind the wheel, she turned her vehicle into a deadly weapon. I really don’t care how many lives she has saved, or the good she has done, it doesn’t “equal” out the balance. SHE NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN DRIVING!!! She needs to take accountablility for her actions and pay the price for killing a human being!!! and you are right, accidendts to happen with or without alcohol. But being intoxicated only diminishes your capacity to react properly. That is what angers me. DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE PERIOD!!!

DONOT ever be little my mom . Jodi was drunk period . She was at fault not my mother . You are ignorant I hope and pray this never happens to you or your family because your comment was very childish and ignorant . You have no compassion what so ever . So why are you even on this site . Be grown up and be realistic if his happened to your mother would you blame her for her not watching her surroundings .

      She made the choice of getting behind the wheel with a .226 BAC yes accidents happen but she could have prevented this by not driving. To call Angies family and friends ignorant is just down right insulting. Her family and friends are hurting, your friend took a Mother, Daughter, Aunt, Grand daughter and friends life because of her actions and put her daughters father in the hospital with very serious injuries. I understand that Jodi’s family and friends are hurting to but they are still able to see her the Goins and Jones family will never see Angie again because of Jodi’s actions. This whole this is sad.

    • JAL
      March 15, 2012 at 9:41 pm

      @R: I can understand you wanting to stick up for your friend, and I would hope that my friends would stand by me if something like this happened to me.
      That said, people are saying horrible things about her because she did a horrible thing. There’s no getting around that. She may have been, sorry, be a wonderful person, sunshine and roses and all that. It doesn’t change the fact that she didn’t just “make a mistake like everyone does,” she made a fatal one. Friends and family lashing out at the person responsible is an understandable response. Would you feel no anger or want to hear yourself called ignorant if the situation were reversed? I think not.

      You sound like you’re a good friend and I will assume a good person so I won’t attempt to belittle or preach to you. My question would be where were all of Jodi’s friends that night? Was she drinking alone? Did any of her friends try to stop her from getting in her truck that night? I say this because if the reported BAC levels are true, there’s no way that someone wouldn’t have notice that she was way past the legal limit. That’s when she really needed a friend the most. If one person had stepped up and taken her keys, your friend would not be in jail and our friend would still be alive.

      Understand that the hurt and anger that Angie’s friends and family feel is completely justified, so regardless of how you feel about it those are lumps that will just have to be taken. At least you both are still here to feel them. Others aren’t so lucky.

          March 16, 2012 at 12:46 am

          I wasn’t under the impression that I was arguing with you at all. Simply pointing out that first, calling those grieving over their loss “ignorant” is extremely disrespectful and uncalled for. Frankly, if we were in fact arguing, then comments like that would tend to prove that if the situation was reversed then yes, you would go on the attack in the same way you feel like you/she are being attacked.
          Second, your repeated “we all make mistakes” line is an attempt to minimize the severity of the mistake. There’s a big difference between a mistake like making a typo on a report and a mistake that causes someone to lose their life. Is that an exaggeration? Yes. And so is your use of “we all make mistakes.”

          While I can empathize with Jodi’s family and friends and I honestly believe that Jodi herself probably feels as devastated as anyone in this, it was the result of her decision to get behind the wheel knowing that she was in no condition to drive. She’s going to have to own that and live with it for the rest of her life. As the mistake was a direct result of a decision she made, she will be held accountable for her actions. Simply support your friend, she’ll need you. But don’t criticize or insult Angie’s friends and family. There’s no defense for what she did.
          And there would be no defense for this argument. If in fact, it was an argument.

            Jodi has a lot of people that love and are hurting and missing and praying for her also. She made a horrible mistake, and she will pay for her actions, but like I said earier Jodi didn’t go out that night with intentions of hurting and killing anyone, and unfortually she didn’t have a friend with her that night so she made the wrong decision to drive, it was a bad decision, and it took the life of a very loved Wife,Friend, Mom, etc… Jodi will have to remenber what she did for the rest of her life, that is punishment in itself. Jodi is still alive and if you believe in God Angie is still alive and in a better place and you will see her again. It was a horrible way for Angie to leave this world, we as humans want our loved ones here with us and when they die in this manner it is natural to have hate for the person who caused it. Jodi made the wrong decision that night but she is also a person that has loved ones who are hurting,and believe me, in knowing Jodi thru my co-worker she will have a horrible life remenbering this bad decision she made. God Bless that both families can overcome this horrible situation.

This would have been different if there was no alcohol. Why invite a tragedy intentionally? Yes I said Intentionally…you drink, you drive you kill someone or yourself. That’s so 3rd grade. I wouldn’t lash out at those hurting by this incident…YOU still have your friend. We do not. Thanks to what you call…and accident. THAT BY THE WAY COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED 100%

      It’s not an “ACCIDENT” when you drink and drive while intoxicated…IT IS A CHOICE! How many people have to die before careless individuals start to GET it? Someone’s wife, daughter, niece, cousin, best friend, etc. died senselessly. There is no excuse for careless, irresponsible actions and CHOICES that lead to the DEATH of another.

    Knowing she was a firefighter makes it all the more frustrating…she was fully culpable. Hope this follows her the rest of her life and haunts her to the end of her days…because at least she will still see family, live and breath and one day, get out of jail and continue to live on.

    @MKS – I am a Christian and a former wildland firefighter, I have not passed judgement on anyone; I don’t have that capacity or duty. However I do have the responsiblity to correct grave misstatements and that’s what I was doing. MADD puports to represent that organization yet I know for a fact that they would never, ever employ a ‘blame the victim’ approach even if they were to defend a documented Drunk Driver who was the cause of such a horrific event.

    • March 15, 2012 at 8:44 pm

      Michael, I was in a rush and did not check the first part of the message, I was referring to MADD as off key That organization made up of mothers and activist against drunk drivers is 0 tolerance of anyone driving under the influence and are at most of the court hearings and DMV hearing making sure the full extent of the law is executed. I to am a firefighter and feel for the lost of Angie and her family’s pain, and I also feel for the mistake that Jodi made in this, and she will pay the price. I do not condone her actions, and I do feel for all that grieve in this process, but do not agree with the out poor of hatred that is displayed in most of these comments, It’s a shame people talk the talk but do not walk the walk. May Christ give comfort to all who are effected by this tragedy and find a way to move forward. I am sorry for the loss of Angie, there are allot of people that loved her and it shows through the responses ion this web site, know that there are people out there that love Jodi too, that does not excuse her of what she has done and she still needs to pay the consequences of her actions according to the law.

        MKS- I completly agree with you, I think everyone is grieving and as a christian myself I struggle with always making the right decesion ( I dont drink) but I have worked with Jodi alittle bit on and off fires and I can honestly say I felt horrible If I could I wish that I can go back in time and find out that she went out and I would have been there as a DD but I never hung out with her and it breaks my heart that this has happened to everyone. I was invlolved in an accident with a drunk driver and it changes your life for everyone. Again I send my sincere apologies to all the families and friends out there. I can honestly say that on this site everyone is grieving and they should all allow to grieve, but I trully think that even the ones that have come to leave this earth would not want all the fighting with eachother.

    And just why is mentioning the speed limit in the article so important? What does that have to do with driving drunk at the result of a tragedy?? Okay so let’s say for example she was driving 15 mph and was still drunk and still killed the victim…..would that make it any better? Mentioning the speed limit, no matter what it was, will never override her being drunk nor will it override the victim’s fatality. I also, am praying for both parties, as well as the person still fighting for his life.

    It’s a tragic accident indeed but nonetheless a very poorly written article. Not once did it mention the actual speed if either vehicle and u would be surprised if after her autopsy the victim comes clean with no trace I’d alcohol in her system. No excuses are being made and my heart goes out to both families. On another note how dare most of you use the Lords name for your personal gain, I agree Jodi made a bad decision but to say “may GOD do this or may GOD do that to you” that’s just plane ignorant. Now do any if you actually know how many lives she did save in her job ie how many times she our her life in the line during work, wow how quick some people are Rio judge and post barbaric thoughts. Stay strong Jodi and May GOD be with both families in such hard times…

      Regardless of how many lives Jodi saved, that does not give her the right to take one life! Because of Jodi’s job, she is held to a higher standard of morals. More importantly, she should hold herself to a higher standard. Did you see the comment by Tanessa? It angers me even more.

      Just a technical reply to LARRD. No one used the Lord’s name. They used the term God. That’s a title not a name. If they used Jehovah or Allah for example, that would be a name.

Do I fill sorry for her NO and in Jesus name I hope she gives her life to Jesus and you to

      The speed limit on 10th Street West and Avenue L are 50MPH. Jodi ran a red light and being drunk didn’t help. Angelica had a green arrow to turn. So now tell me who’s at fault?

      • MADD
        March 15, 2012 at 3:29 pm

        Sorry for this terrible tragedy. I am praying for everyone involved. The fact is, Jodi ran the red light and Angie made her left turn without looking to her left and right first before jumping the green arrow. If alcohol was not involved – Insurance companies would have faulted Angie for the accident because she proceeded into the intersection when it was not clear and safe. (Been there, done that) Jodi would have gotten a ticket for speeding and running the red light. I know Jodi was drunk and should not have been driving. Was Angie out drinking too? If the tables were turned and Jodi was the fatality (and I already know many of you that have commented wished this was the case)- would most of you still say those hurtful things about Jodi? Would you say them about Angie? I know Jodi did not plan her evening to go and kill Angie. I know Angie did not plan on ending her life turning in front of a drunk driver who was about to run that red light. I am so sorry that this happened. I have been a member of MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) for many years and I am sadden deeply that this type of tragedy happens everyday.

          March 15, 2012 at 4:32 pm

          You’re statement is nonsensical and is on the same logic level as saying a shooting victim is as much at fault for not jumping out of the way of the bullet. Blame deflection on a victim of a crime (who cannot defend herself) is sad and pathetic. Angie did nothing wrong; Ms. Bikers did everything wrong.

          • March 15, 2012 at 5:07 pm

            Michael, you are so of key. MADD is a well known in being 0 tolerance against drunk drivers. Jodi did a terrible thing and drove while intoxicated, she will live out her life knowing what she did and she will pay the consciences through the court systems. and we are called to pray for all not just Angie, but for Jodi as well. If you follow Christ, you need to forgive. That does not mean forget or hold judgement or a grudge, this is Christ and Christ alone judgment. I am deeply sorry for the loss of Angie, the passenger and for Jodi and all the families associated with either may GOD comfort you in your loss and grieving process and for Jodi and her family to over come this long hurdle that is in front of them.

          March 15, 2012 at 4:54 pm

          @MADD: It is a complete fallacy for you to presume to know whether she looked both ways before entering the intersection, as well as completely ludicrous for you to insinuate that Angie would have been faulted by an insurance company or ticketed. You are making broad personal assumptions and attempting to present them as facts. Your “been there, done that” in no way makes you an authority on this issue.
          Unless you have personal knowledge of the incident, please refrain from questioning the sobriety of the victim. Your intent seems to be on spreading the blame, and you don’t appear to have any evidence of that being the case.
          You seem to be attempting to use the MADD name to try to lend credence to your assumptions, and I doubt very seriously that an official MADD spokesperson would make assumptions such as yours and present them as “facts.”
          Your comments are a discredit to the organization you purport to represent.

            She must have been a drinking buddy of yours to make such a comment. I have a huge feeling if if the tables were turned and your daughter, son, mother, father, best friend were dead right now from my irresponsible friend your response to anybody on this would be so different.

          MADD, you are an idiot. What’s the point in playing with what if’s??? The girl was drunk and she ran a red light…PERIOD. Being a firefighter, that girl should have known better as she’s probably pulled people out of drunken car crashes. No, she did not plan on killing someone but she knew, before taking that first drink, what the consequenses are. No current CA penalty is harsh enough for Jodi to pay. She’ll still get to see her family, to breath and live and one day, get out of jail….what about Angie???? What about her family??? You should be kicked out of MADD for blaming a victim!!!

          Madd, you are an idiot. Trying to place any blame on the victims here is a joke. The FACT is a person went to a bar, with the intent of drinking, couldn’t control herself, and instead of calling a friend, family member or a cab, chose to take their drunk self and drive, destroying several families lives. I hope they throw the book at the piece of trash!

        • Donna
          March 17, 2012 at 7:25 am

          Oh my.. MADD, I feel quite certain that YOU do not represent the organization of MADD. Unless you are actually an Insurance adjuster, you cannot make a judgement stating that Angie would be at fault. Also, YOU WERE NOT THERE! If you had been, I would have SEEN you because I WAS there!
          When you come to a green arrow, do YOU stop to make sure nobody is coming through the RED light to the RIGHT or LEFT of you? I mean REALLY? If you did that in regular traffic, you would be rear-ended and you KNOW that! I think you need to look at the LAW again!! Angie did NOT pull in front of opposing traffic. Jodi was the CROSS traffic now wasn’t she! If you PULL in front of opposing ON COMING TRAFFIC, THEN you will possibly be held accountable by an Insurance company… But that isn’t what happened here! I hope that you are not the BADGE of this organization…because if you ARE, you have just made a serious Blemish!! If you are, you have a RESPONSIBILITY for the words flowing from your mouth!
          I’m sad for Mz. Biers because she was likely tired and out with folks and never realized what was about to happen.. NOBODY, if they are well, goes out to take a life!
          I pray for healing for Pat and for Angie’s Family and friends. I also pray for Jodi..Many times we never see or feel the consequences of our actions until it’s to late.
          I’m so sad for ALL involved.

            I don’t think she meant it as a blaming of the victim. We all know where the blame lies. I’m taking it as advice to be proactive. As a mother and wife, I do everything I can to be safe and healthy, and if that means when I drive in the middle of the night I check to make sure no one’s coming, even if I have the right of way, it might save my life. That’s it…take it as a pearl of wisdom to stay safe from drunk drivers

If you don’t know either of theses people my mother Angie or Jodi then excuse yourself ASAP ! Unless you have some condolences for both families ! I’m disgusted by the comments on Jodi’s and my mothers behalf . You adults are acten like children I’m 20 years old and don’t behave in the way you guys are ! Forget everyone’s opinion the fact is my mom is dead ! And Jodi is in jail for driving while intoxicated and killing my mother and injuring my father tremoundously . that’s is and that’s all !

    This is a very tragic situation for both families. I know Jody personally, she is a genuinely good person, unfortunately she made a wrong decision, that caused for someone lose their life. My prayers go out to both families, I know what it is to loose someone to a drunk driver. So my heart goes out to the Angelas family, may u find some sort of comfort with yourself and among the family. And to Jody, just know we have you in our thoughts and prayers. I’m sorry and sadden, it could have happen to anyone. Stay strong.

    This horrible person (the murderer) will be charged with murder because that is exactly what she did, she knowingly and maliciously killed someone with her truck.

      It is a sad time for alot of people. I’m so so sorry to Angie’s Family and friends, I didn’t know her,but from the e-mails she seemed like a very beautiful, sweet lady inside and out, she seems like she will be greatly missed. But on the other hand It is very wrong to say mean things about Jodi, I’m sure your saying it out of hurt, but she also has people who love her too. Jodi did a horrible thing by drinking and driving but I’m sure she didn’t get into her car that night and say I’m going to cause a accident, she made a mistake, and she will have to live with it the rest of her life. At this time there should be compassion for both familys.

      • Toni
        March 15, 2012 at 2:49 pm

        Jodi made a conscious decision to drink first of all, then get in her truck, bottom line she could have prevented this BY NOT GETTING IN HER TRUCK TO DRIVE!!! Get a cab, call someone to drive!! There is no excuse! If you’re drinking, DON’T Drive!! We hear these stories over and over again just never thought it would hit this close to home for me, I lost a beautiful friend and she’s not coming back. Regardless of the fact that Jodi will have to live with this for the rest of her life, she still has a life, it won’t be a quality life but she won’t be six feet under! Lord Have Mercy on her soul! And in other words if she didn’t kill my friend that night, drinking and driving would be ok with you?? The Lord is going to have to work with me on this one because I don’t have one once of compassion for Jodi the FOOL!!

        • March 15, 2012 at 3:42 pm

          Toni, yet I see your hurt through this and your right Jodi made a wrong decision to get behind that wheel. But, as I stated on one of the other comments. GOD and only GOD will be the final judge in this, Jodi will pay the price for her decision and live her life out knowing she killed some one in that decision, and YOU will never know. And for you to say, you are having a hard time with it, CHRIST went to the cross for you and Angie and for Jodi weather you agree with it or not, but Christ died for all of us as we all are guilty of sin and Christ forgave us all by doing so. We need to have the same hart as Christ. This does not change the fact that Jodi did something wrong and she will pay the price, but we are called to act as Christ did for us. Bottom line, if you believe and are forgiven, you need to forgive as Christ did for YOU!. MKS

            The Bible also says “an eye for an eye” No one is saying to MURDER Jodi just like she MURDER our loved one. But jail time, yes. For her to plead not guilty is just a slap in our faces. To leave a young lady motherless with her father fighting for his life…heartless and worthy of prison. At the pearly gates we all have to answer for our issues, but Here and Now on Earth…Jodi needs to go to be punished.

          • March 15, 2012 at 4:52 pm

            Kathlene, Yes an eye for an eye, but it also says vengeance is mine and mine alone. Please read your BIBLE. No one is saying Jodi go free, and no one is condoning this thoughtless act. We all grieve different, and actions, knee jerk opinions, and to say the things I am reading, I am sorry for there loss and understand, but as a christian I am held to follow our Lord and His ways. I still fall short in many ways, but my calling is to HIM and HIM alone. This is not about you, or any other person commenting about this, this is about a young lady making a wrong choice and about a well loved lady losing her life to early and taken from their family, and it’s about having a forging heart and acting upon that as CHRIST did for you, me and everyone else. Christ knew Angie before she was born, HE knew how many hairs upon her head, and HE knew what time, hour and day Angie was leaving us. Read Ecclesiastics 11-7 thru 12-14 This life is meaningless and a vapor we are called upon to live our life as CHRIST did, cause life is short and no one knows the time or date of our departure. So be ready. May God give us the strength to be upright and forgiving as He did for us. MKS

Much younger I’m sure but by the grace of God we didn’t have to go through this or put someone else through it. I do hope she gets all she deserves from the courts.

      Trust and believe her bail WILL be raised on her first court date. Judge Ogden do not mess around. He raised that man bail two weeks ago that killed those two poor Walmart employees and J and 20th. R.I.P. to Angie and I’m praying for your family.

    To this dear family:
    I was sitting in the drive thru window at Wendy’s when this horrible crash occurred. I immediately called 911.. Watching this horrible accident has changed my life forever. Within 5 minutes there were 3-5 Sheriff’s there and in 5-8 minutes there were 2-3 firetrucks.. they worked very VERY hard..within 12 minutes there were 7-9 Sheriff’s and about 7 firetrucks. I sat there frozen, in the parking lot…knowing I would have been in that intersection had there not been a problem with my Iced Tea paper cup..
    I am so very very sorry for this horrible loss. God’s Blessings on Mrs. Goins-Jones family and friends. I pray you will find some peace.. my Prayers are with you and your family.

      Donna I live in the apartments across the way! My fiance was out walking our dog, heard everything and went to the parking lot to see if the dazed driver who got out of the truck Jodi needed medical assistance, she stared got back in the vehicle and threw it in reverse and right then a cop showed up and apparently Jodi realized her truck wasnt going ANYWHERE! How dare her try to leave! My heart hurts so bad just thinking about this horiffic accident! NEVER will I go through a green light with my foot not being on the brake and looking every direction! Sad how careless Jodi is and now has taken Angies life and and injured another and left their family and friends heart broken! My thoughts and prayers are with u and your loved ones!

        I saw someone get out of the truck but the first Sheriff on site pulled up within minutes. I was still on the 911 call when they arrived. I had been transferred to the Firetruck response or something. I wondered what the deal was when nobody seemed to be running over to the truck..but Tanessa, that truck wasn’t going anywhere! It had spun around and was sent back the direction it was coming from, only to hit the curb or whatever it hit on that side of the street. My attention was on the car that looked like it was going straight through Carl’s Jr.’s window. Had the truck attempted to leave I would have simply given the information to the Officers I had on the phone, along with a visual description of the truck and a picture from my phone.
        As I read all these posts I wonder:
        how many reading these posts, and hearing this tragic story, have ever had even 1-2 drinks and then said “oh, I need to go!” and then left.. Mind you, apparently the driver of the truck had a HIGH alcohol reading but I think even one drink can throw off the bodies ability to REACT in a timely way. My heart aches for all the families involved because I KNOW this is impossible to deal with. Be CAREFUL in this Valley. There are SO MANY that act Irresponsible when driving.. For myself, I’m finding I am driving straight home after my work now..not relaxing a bit at work before leaving.. I want EVERY sense to be Awake and Responsive! I’m even considering working from home. Life is worth making compromises. Heaven is busy this week. My Auntie passed away 24 hours after Angelica’s passing. It’s been a very hard few days.

    Only $100,000 bail for murder? That’s what driving drunk and killing someone is murder! Period

      It is the system that the bail is set at 100,000. If you shoot someone the bail is higher. The end result is the same. Someone is dead. And the driver will only get a slap on the wrist and go bout her merry way. Unfortunately that is how the system works. Many prayers go out to the whole Jones family in this time.

        March 14, 2012 at 9:41 am

        Actually she wont get a slap on the wrist. Felony DUI, vehicular manslaughter at the least which will probably be changed to 2nd degree murder. Not really a slap on the wrist.

        • Tara
          March 14, 2012 at 10:06 am

          hell yes! she should get charged with 2nd degree murder!!! If Tommie Lee Cole was Charged with murder for Beau and Jeff why isn’t Jodi being charged the same way!?!?…..She used her vehicle as a weapon….it is MURDER!!! Period!! being drunk is not an excuse to get behind the wheel and take an innocent life!

            They havent filed charges yet so noone knows exactly what the charges are going to be. Its been a little over 24 hrs. Give them time to file the case first.

          Most likely it will be a murder charge. According to a Sheriff’s Dept. spokesman, the suspect was a forest service employee and due to her line of work, should have known better (Like law enforcement, firefighters, etc, have a higher standard than the rest of us)as such she likely will get charged with a higher crime.

          She won’t see the light of day for at least 50 years.

            How unfortunate this has been for allot of people, the lost of a person is a great tragedy through any circumstance and the pain felt by all are knee jerk reaction, how ignorant some people are to point fingers at anyone, remember before you pull the spec of wood out of someone else’s eye take a look at the plank in your own eye. There is no excuse in the world for Jodi and the situation she put her self in, but God is the only judge not any of you and your comments about her and what YOU think should be done. GOD and GOD alone is our judge in life, yes Jodi will pay for her mistake and she alone will live with the decision she made that day. Not any of you will know the pain she is going through knowing what she has done. As Jesus stood before the crowd of people ready to stone Mary, and Jesus said is there any of you the are not of sin let him cast the first stone. So are any of you who are ready to condemn pure and up right, I THINK NOT. To all involved pray for healing, forgive as Christ forgave and move forward in the healing through this tragic event. May God give comfort and peace. MKS

            As sad as it is, she will not get 50 yrs.
            Lancaster has a success rate of 98.7 % conviction,
            Becuz they give deals. Her charges will drop to voluntary
            Manslaughter and take a deal for 7 to 11 yrs, granted this is her
            First time. I know it dosent seem fair, but I work for the system
            And that’s what Ive seen for these cases.
            My heart goes out to Angies family,God bless u all.

My prayers and thoughts go out to the family & friends of the victims. May God be with the passenger as he fights for his life.

      God has mercy for everyone who asks. Justice is in the hands of the courts and ultimately in God’s hands. None-the-less, Ms. Biers will have to live the rest of her life with the guilt of her actions. May all the families, friends, and co-workers who know the Goins, Jones, and Bier find peace during this tragic time. Dear God, please help us through this.
