and veered onto the right shoulder, CHP Officer Jim Bettencourt said.

The coupe then overturned and struck a tree, coming to a rest upside down, Bettencourt said. The driver died at the scene.

Bettencourt said it was unclear if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the collision.

Realistically - more apt to be prescription drugs from the doctor. I'll bet there were more Avo Festors on drugs than alcohol or pot. Under the Influence of ANY mind altering substance. That's my observance yesterday.

Accidents happen everyday. Sometimes we lose loved ones to them. My family knows this young lady and her family. She was a beautiful girl...working and attending college. We grieve with her family. A tragic loss. Question: Why is it that some people find it necessary to share their assumptions "outloud" on a story so tragic? Is it narcissism? I don't get it! I feel sorry for people like that.

Oh my, she was just starting her life. As a mom of 7, my heart goes out to the friends and family.

Lisa, sorry for you friend's loss; to answer your question - some people have to attack others to feel better about themselves. Some of us feel ok about ourselves and wait for the facts. I could guess that this young person was startled by an animal racing out in the street after she had worked a double shift to support her mother - makes as much sense as suggesting she was high or drunk or on her phone.
