She was the most carful human being. No way this was her fault. This is a tragedy. A bright beautiful soul taken from us too soon. She had so many things to accomplish. She was a bright human being who brought light into many lives. Some ignorant AV lowlife person under the influence killed her and survived. Justice needs to be served!!! It’s not fair, You will be missed.
The AV’s had so many fatal accidents in recent months. Scary! Every I’m driving somewhere I always think… what if it’s my last day on earth:/ I don’t think I’ve ever felt more paranoid about driving as I have the last couple years. I don’t know why. It’s so weird!:/
It is not weird at all.
If the jack holes would obey laws and stop stroking their own egos, put down the phones, and pay attention then the roads would be much safer.
Just those three things – laws, phones, attention.
Sounds/looks to me, like she pulled right into his path. At 1 pm the sun is not in your eyes making it difficult to see. That Camry most certainly has daytime running headlights. If he(Camry driver) was riding a motorcycle the outcome would likely be reversed.
My sympathy and prayers go out to all folks involved.

… very fast segment of Avenue I, people on the east side are always well over 60. Stop-start, start-stop, none of those traffic lights are synchronized –
Not synced because then they would drive even faster.
No it is Ave I & 7Th St EAST !!! Just as the article stated !!!!
