“ Authorities said a female driver headed northbound lost control of her car around a curve and veered into bicycle lane at an unsafe speed.” Sooooo, has/will the female driver be charged?!


I would like to know this as well. Or do we not want to make murderous drivers feel any worse than they do already? Can we get names or any other information?

If you cared to check, you would see that this story is all over the Bay Area and not one of them lists the name of the driver. That is because they all get their info from here: --https://www.smcsheriff.com/news-room

Notice that nobody's names are provided. There is no conspiracy. Have no fear. Your need for reattribution will undoubtedly be satiated.

here ya' go

I read somewhere today that the driver, Samantha Mei Hartwell, is facing 2nd degree murder and other charges. RIP Thomas.
