My Condolences to the Family.

Crystal Anderson died in a car accident yesterday.  What’s different about this one is that her death was a direct result of her desire to help other accident victims.  She got out of her vehicle to help some people in a car that landed on it’s roof, and got struck by someone else that had lost control on the slick road. (Tribune article here).

Wow, that was a sad situation. My condolences go out to the Anderson family as well. Thank you Max for sharing this unfortunate story.

Oh, Max. I'm so sorry.

Max said...

Thanks. I didn't know her, but it's just tragic when something like that happens to someone who was just trying to help people in distress.

And my sympathies go to the driver of the car that hit her and the ones in the overturned car. Imagine going through your life knowing you had accidentally led to someone's horrific death -- even though it was a complete accident.

Good point. It's going to change their lives too. And you can't say "they were drunk, they deserve to have to live with it." The worst thing anyone there was doing, if even that, was driving a little too fast for the conditions.
