Read it/shocked.

Visualized it/laughed.

Still laughing...

Oh yeah Poe, you wouldn't be laughing if it was your grandmother now would you... Oh never mind, I laughed too. One day I hope I die in shocking way that will allow an entire city a genuine moment of false pathos.

Jesus is right. She was going to have a pretty great day, until Jesus made her crash her car and land upside down.

Bless her soul, and pray for her family. She's in heaven now.

Irony for retards. I bet she was a Christian AND a heterosexual!

Every grandchild deserves a grandfather and grandmother.

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep, like my Grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.

I was in an accident once (Interstate 80 near Lyman, Wyoming, December 31, 1997) in which my car went off the road and landed upside down in the median strip. I would not be alive today if I hadn't been wearing my seatbelt. This is not an experience I would wish on anyone. Jesus, indeed.

Old people are great for a good laugh!

@7, being anywhere near Lyman Wyoming is not an experience I would wish on anyone either.

Are the police sure a pit bull wasn't driving?

there are worse ways to go. at least she didn't drive thru a shopping center, killing and maiming dozens in her path and saying later that "oh, officer i had my foot on the brake the whole time."

Am I the only one who thinks the wording of the article is odd? It was "her car" that crashed into a utility pole, not the elderly driver who drove into it.

I wish car manufacturers didn't build cars with a mind of their own. Her family should sue the maker for putting cars on the road that wrest control from the drivers and cause deadly accidents.

Why won't the government protect us from these dangerous vehicles?

This just in: Really old people suck at driving really, really bad. If it gets to be any more of a problem, officials say, they may have to divert their attention away from pestering local pubs about noise and the potential 20-year-olds drinking inside.
