  1. News that is truly timely is a great improvement on sources here! I arrived at the scene of the Hwy. 71 crash before the state troopers did — so was most interested. It looked very bad, and was.

  2. This was my sister. I know Nothing will bring her back. We the family feel for the truck driver. He has to live with what happened. We forgive him it was an accident and it was my sisters fault. She would want him to move on and know she lived her life and it was time for her to go.
