Our thoughts and support go out to the family and community of the victim. We imagine that they may have been deeply affected by this tragedy. We also sincerely hope that those in the hospital recover quickly. We wonder what may have been the cause of the accident? Was there a vehicle malfunction? Was this a case of distracted driving? Was the driver attempting to avoid an obstacle in the road?
