    First off If your going to report the news, get the facts! This woman is 21 years old, she was not speeding and her lights were on, The Jeep is brand new and lights come one automatically. This is my cousin. We talked to witness’s last night, a driver in the car in front asnd behind her, They both said that another car cut her off after cutting them off aswell. She lost control and hit the tree. Its sad when the news is reporting false info when someone is fighting for their life!
