I know we don't have all the information in this story, but I'm gonna say what I'm sure other are thinking as well........stay off the cell phone while driving. or eating. or doing makeup. It's NOT worth dying.

I believe it's a little early to be attributing this fatal collision to carelessness of the driver. Obviously, the driver lost control, but it might have been a vehicle malfunction as well. If the individual who was killed were a relative or loved one of yours, you might understand why cause is not determined immediately, or even guessed at. We will hear more details as time passes. Truly, it is a reminder of what could happen, but may not have happened in this case. I extend my sympathy to the family of the victim, as well as friends and those who were acquainted.

My thoughts and prayers are with the driver and his family. As I drove past the scene on my way to the Daly City BART station I saw the vehicle near the center divide. My heart was filled with sadness....

The individual who passed away was an incredible, compassionate, and caring person. I hope readers will restrain from ridicule or assumption of cause and grant loved ones the respect and space they need to honor and mourn.
