I am not saying this is what happened just stating what I saw yesterday. 93% of all car accidents are caused by distraction. Distractions can be be kids fighting/ screaming in the back seat, changing the radio station and the number one - cell phone. Either a text or a phone call or checking your e mail while driving was the #1 distraction. Prayers go out to her family for their loss. God Bless.

If she was texting(And why that is still legal is beyond me) that God she only took her life. Could have been worse.

I don't know why in the face of a horror and devistation to a family, people feel the need to make any negative comments at all. Do they even know what empathy is? My heart aches for Suzanne's family. :(

"thank god" how about giving your condolences to the family instead of justifying that atleast she was the one.....shame on you

Living in the area, We (the residents in Willow Bend) have complained repeatedly to PCSO about the cars that speed up and down Collier Parkway and Willow Bend Parkway. From the amount of damage, it appeared as id speed was a factor in this crash. How many people need to be injured or die before they take enforcement seriously?

@Steve - Agreed 100%. We reside a little further down County Line Road and frequently hear cars and motorcycles high-rev racing down the long county road in the early morning hours; typically between Friday and Sunday. It's been going on for quite a few years.
