  1. Omg! How awful! My heart goes out to this man’s family. What on earth would make this woman veer to the side of the road and hit him like that if it wasn’t alcohol or drug related? Maybe speeding or preoccupied with something other than driving and looking at the road. How do you not see a person? There is so much room to drive right there. So sad and so preventable.
