US Congresswoman killed in accident

Date: August 03, 2022 03:09PM
US Rep. Jackie Walorski, R-Ind., was among the victims of a car crash Wednesday afternoon in northern Indiana. Walorski, 58, was traveling with her communications director, Emma Thompson, and Zachery Potts of the St. Joseph’s County Republican Party, when a car heading in the opposite direction drifted over the lane and struck them. She was first elected to the seat, which contains the cities of South Bend and Elkhart, in 2012

It truly is. Makes me wonder about seat belts, what type of SUV they were driving, the speed, etc.

Indiana state route 19. Country road, single lane, farms either side, head on collision at high speed (55mph speed limit, both vehicles probably going 70 mph plus.). Really no chance of survival regardless of seat belts and air bags. Everyone died. I've driven roads like that for years, sometimes at stupid speeds. A tenth of a second of inattention can and will kill you.

No. The driver (sole occupant) of the other vehicle did not survive the collision.

Agree. I've broken 100 on those kinda roads in South Texas.

No doubt she was facing a tough primary fight from a further right aspirant.

Ugh. That is tragic. The safety tech coming in new cars can't come along soon enough.

Ban assault vehicles. No one needs a vehicle that goes that fast, is that large, powerful and deadly

Vehicles don’t kill, people kill. A vehicle is just a tool that is designed to kill. It’s sole purpose is to kill although it can be used for target practice. But vehicles do an excellent job at taking down deer, both in season and, legally, out of season. You can strap your kill on top of your weapon, not something easily done on an AR-15. It can be a family activity, load up the kids and let everyone enjoy the hunt.

I know, right? Some states allow even a 16 yr old child operate an F-250 without adult supervision. AR you at least have to be 18 to buy one
