      @tc1: that is a horrible thing to say. A family is in mourning right now over the loss of a loved one. Think before you speak.

    Story seems to be incomplete. It doesn't directly identify the victim, but at one point says "Capman's husband" in reference to the driver.

    People making insensitive comments on here need to grow up. Sarah was a student of mine in high school and was an absolute sweetheart. I can't imagine what her husband and family are currently going through. My heart aches for them.

      Well said Bob! People need to think about their words before speaking or typing them. Never once did the article say they were speeding around the curve. The roads were very slippery yesterday. If all you insensitive people have never once slid on slippery roads, well consider yourself fortunate.

    Thank you Mr. Pesky she loved having you as a teacher and she would appropriate you defending her. Please keep im mind to everyone else that you hurt not just him but all of his family and friends when you say unfounded crap like that. So please keep it to yourself. None of us want to hear it. They have been like family to me they are good people and I dont appropriate it. Neither do their familiesor the rrest of their friends.
