Default Lost a friend...

I recently lost my best friend in an automobile accident. She was 18, and considered a very good driver. On the freeway, a 45 year old woman rearended her when traffic suddenly stopped. The woman was going 80 or 85 on the freeway and hit my friend. It irritates me that somebody who was so reckless and unaware of her surroundings got out of her car scratch-free, while my friend died.

I am sorry for the loss of your friend. Too often people talk about younger drivers needing more restrictions and requirements for licensing but they don't talk about instances, like this one, where the younger driver is doing exactly what they should be doing when disaster strikes.

I'm sorry to hear about the tragedy of your friend.

I suspect the woman who caused the accident will be troubled by it for the rest of her life.

Too many people are innocently killed on the highways. You have to be a very defensive driver on these roads.

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. It isn't fair that she was doing exactly the right thing but she was the one killed in the accident. I wish you peace, love, strength, and above all healing in the difficult days ahead.

What a terrible thing. More often than not, the person who is injured badly or killed is the person who was "innocent" or in the "right". I don't know why things happen this way but soemtimes they just do. I'm sorry for your loss and I know it must be difficult but you shouldn't be angry. I do wish you peace.

You're right, it's not fair. Injustice is the hardest thing to accept in life. What happen to your friend is a tragedy. I'm sure the lady is feeling pretty awful. If it were me, I wouldn't even be able to get behind the wheel for quite a while!
