Actually thank God she didn't kill or hurt anyone in the building. They & her child were the innocent ones.

3g Elementary my dear

3g Elementary my dear Watson!

The business is innocent because it is just sitting there, static and not moving - how could they be responsible for the accident? The child is innocent because he/she wasn't driving. The driver is responsible.

I was just responding to the first comment who didn't even acknowledge the innocent folks in the building who could have been killed or really hurt by this woman's lack of attention to details.

Haha.. If you say so.. Well

Haha.. If you say so..
Well dear watson, if no one was baiting, then why did you feel it necessary to keep explaining your comments? You said what you said, and people can't help but twist words or start nonsense over it. *sigh*

Bet some people in the building had to empty their shorts, however. Some even might've found religion.

hmm "pommom" and

hmm "pommom" and "PUPPYMOMMA"....? Split personalities?

Either way, I agree, Chillen wasn't the one baiting, I had the same thought after that first comment. What about the people in the building who had no idea she was going to crash thru a wall..? It's a wonderful thing NOBODY was hurt. Now they need to find out why she lost control...

I'm glad no one was hurt.
Unpublished

I'm glad no one was hurt. Please check her cell phone and see if she was making a call. If she wasn't, good. If she was, don't throw the book at her, throw the library. Oh, what I see during the day!

Hey Roadkill, I hope you are

Hey Roadkill, I hope you are joking. You ever seen a smart car after it's been wrecked? Looks like a sardine can all smashed up. I would be willing to bet their would have been injuries if they were in one of those death traps!!

Look, you can't win for

Look, you can't win for losing. If I had said something about her driving skills , without knowing all the facts, someone would have something to say. My second comment was not meant sarcastically. I probably should have put it in with my first comment without prompting from someone who didn't mean any harm. The article doesn't say what caused this. What if the update is that she had a medical emergency ? It could be any number of reasons but until we know, it is speculation. Maybe she swerved to avoid a turtle in the road, maybe she was on her cell phone. But since we're baiting- why do people, not just the above poster, always say "Get a life"? If their lives are so wonderful and they have better things to do, why are they posting, too?

Maybe if we are lucky we will get the rest of the story. AC doesn't tell it all the first clip so we will keep coming back.

No reason to identify this

No reason to identify this vehicle as an SUV. That has nothing to do with story, just pc rubbish from Prius-driving vegetarian Birkenstock-wearing conspicuous non-consumers.

They may amend it once full

They may amend it once full details are released. Why Dixie? You don't feel it was pertinent to the story as to what kind of vehicle was involved? They usually do list vehicles involved in accidents.

I hope 3g was being sarcastic

I hope 3g was being sarcastic with his 11:13. I mean really.... did you have to ask? This was the baiting if there was any, either that or a complete lack of common sense. Chillen, I agree with everything you have written even if some others can't comprehend and claim its petty. And if that ain't the pot calling the kettle black!! lol You aren't the one making the big deal about it. lol

If I remember correctly, that detail was omitted in yesterday's initial posting. It is good that Valerie Rowell edited the story to provide more clarity, but did she have to tell us that Ms. Luz passed out four times???
