    I think it is terrible that a person in a truck, runs a red light crashes into my sister and kills her. She was 50 years young and a ray of sunshine. The driver of the truck walks.

      The driver of the truck is a good person too who made a tragic mistake. I know the driver of the truck and I know people that worked with Jill and its a sad situation. But I know for a fact the driver of the truck would never have wanted this to happen and didn’t intentionally do anything wrong. Mistakes are made by me, you, and every one every day. This one just didn’t have good results for either driver. Sorry for your loss and sorry for everyone who knew Jill.
