Crash

"It's sad, but it was the driver's fault," Scott continues dispassionately. "He was driving too fast for the conditions. He should have been going thirty-five but he was doing seventy. It doesn't matter what the weather-the driver should adjust."

Pauline Lee's accident in the snow on Scio Church Road totaled her Honda, but it could have been far worse. She was wearing her seatbelt and her grandson was in his booster seat. Neither of them was hurt.

Lee, seventy-eight, had never been in an accident before-in fact, she said, she'd never so much as gotten a traffic ticket. Because the January crash was attributed to the weather, she wasn't ticketed this time, either.

She called her daughter-in-law, who was at the Dicken School science fair, and waited calmly for her to show up.

Jackson, age five and a half, was calm too. It was only after his mom arrived and strapped him securely into the backseat of her minivan that he turned to Lee and said, "Grandma, let's never do that again."    (end of article)
