Cars are weapons.

Dollars to donuts the woman was texting and driving or had her attention focused on some sort of device instead of the road.

Her cell phone records should be subpoenaed immediately.

Texting and driving should at least carry the same penalty as driving while imparted. Being of sounds mind and body and not paying attention to the road, what excuse do you have?
