The matriarch of a Texas family lost her life due to the poor decisions of a college student who was driving too fast for the weather conditions. A young driver’s sports car spun out of control, crossed over the highway divide, and entered directly into a grandmother’s lane of travel. There was nothing that she could have done to avoid the collision. Many times, it’s not the damage caused by the accident, but the aftermath of losing a cherished family member that hurts the most.
