im very sad for that wreck

Hey Gail,

Bah Humbug to you too! Why are you being so mean. This close knit community has lost both a mother and daughter as well as friend and neighbor. I have been a Paramedic for many years and a vehicle can hydroplane at speeds as low as 10 mph and up. This was a very unfortunate accident and I do believe that God did place those medical professionals at the scene to provide support and help for those not fatally injured. One question: Are you just mean or stupid?

i went to her candle lighting ceremony, and left her a drawing which she asked me to draw at the beginning of the year for her, never shed a tear until i put the drawing next to the memorial and looked at the picture of her... R.I.P Haley

Since neither texting nor speeding have been cited in this article, let's focus on the real story - the tragic death of a mother and a daughter.

I know two teens that knew the girl. One of them was in gymnastics with her and said "She was really cool. I liked her alot.". The other went to school with her and said "She stood up for people.".

There's the story. No assumptions - just the words of those who knew one of the victims.

Gail you have no idea what you are talking about.please remember that those women still have family that you need to be considerate of.

OMG I

Gail, Such hateful comments. No where did it say speed or cell phone were a factor. Shame on you.

ITS SO SAD THE MOTHER AND DAUGHTER LOSS THEIR LIVES DUE TO WHAT, WAS THE MOTHER ON HER PHONE, GOING TO FAST AND IT WAS WET AND RAINING, WHAT??, LIVES JUST WASTED, MY KIDS LAUGH AT ME AND SAY I DRIVE TOO SLOW, WELL I GO JUST A LITTLE UNDER THE SPEED LIMIT , I DRIVE WHAT I CAN HANDLE, AND IF IT IS RAINING I GO SLOW, I AM REAL CAUTIOUS,, AND I DO NOT USE MY CELL PHONE AT ALL WHEN DRIVING, I THINK TEXTING IS THE WORSE THING THEY COULD HAVE INVENTED, AND MAYBE CELL PHONES TOO. SO SAD.GLAD THE BOYS OK

Why would you assume speed and texting were factors? The speed limit in most of that area is 65-70, this kind of damage can occur at speeds as low as 30mph. Cell phones don't cause hydroplaning. At just 30 mph, a 160 lb person, a reasonable weight for the mom, stopping suddenly, such as hitting a tree, is subject to 2.4 tons of stopping pressure from the seat belt, and if the car weighs 3500 lbs, the car itself is subject to 52 TONS! of force. Please stop assuming.....

Gail, here is no reference to the mother texting or speeding in this story, so as others have said, let's focus on the point of the story: the deaths of a woman and her child. Please realize that what you are saying could be considered offensive to those who personally knew either Haley or her mother. Okay?

You don't know what talking about. I saw the accident and was the first to stop. I was heading South and Mrs Warren was coming north.. She was not speeding or doing anything that i could see out of the ordinary. She hit a pool of water in the left lane and the front of the car jerked to the right. the car started sliding and unfortunately hit the tree. later that night I was coming back from Jacksonville and saw that another car slid off the side of the road at the same spot. Its the road.

Why are these accusations necessary? Hurts to even read them.

You're right as rain Moni, hurts me too.

Gail, while I have to agree with you that there are a lot of people on the road that drive while talking on their cell phones and that does cause a lot of accidents, most of the time fatal accidents. But, where in this news post say anything about this woman talking on her cell phone while driving? Also, where does it say that she was speeding? It does however say that she hydroplaned. There is no know minimum speed to make a vehicle hydroplane. There are a lot of other factors.

The real story here is that Haley has a chance because the first few people on the seen were an x-ray tech from x=ray xpress and a home health nurse from a
At Home Healthcare that pulled her out of the vehicle and breathed for her and did chest compressions until authorities arrived. The boy was cared for by the school nurse from Bullard that happened to drive by and then came another nurse to help the first from I dont know where. 4 medical personnel...God?

WHY CAN'T PEOPLE LEARN THAT YOU CAN'T DRIVE FAST WITH YOUR KIDS IN THE CAR AND IF YOU WILL NOT STAY OFF YOUR PHONES. WHO KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED HERE,, NOW THOSE KIDS WILL NOT HAVE A MOTHER IF THAT IS WHAT SHE WAS TO THEM, OR GRANDMOTHER... SO SAD...... GOD BLESS THOSE KIDS AND GOD WRAP YOUR ARMS AROUND THEM AND PROTECT THEM TO HEAL FAST.......
