Steve you don't know the circumstances or what caused the issue. At this time of hurting for the family your comments are uncalled. Rest in peace. I will always love you.

You're absolutely correct, my apologies to the family. Walking across that road every day near that location to get my newspaper and nearly being run down by speeding motorists coming down the hill gives me no right to speculate. It saddens me to see that someone has lost a life and a family has lost a loved one.
