      Why was she outside of her car on the side of the road if something didn't malfunction?

      I'm not going to go in to the technicalities of what can go wrong with a car that can cause it to stop running when it's warm and then be able to start up again when it's cooled off (relays that fail only when they overheat due to malfunction, and work again after cooling off just to fail again when they get hot, for example), but maybe you should educate yourself about how certain electrical and or mechanical systems in vehicles work before calling someone a liar.

        I heard she got out to clean off her back window. This is sad she was a wife, a mother, a daughter, and a friend. It don't matter why she got out all that matters is there are three children without a mother……. Prayers to the Family May you rest in paradise
