This is sad indeed, i just took a look at her profile and i felt as if i knew her for a long time, you can see how bright her future would have been, so full of life and adventure, speeding did not seem like an immediate factor to me in any of these accident, more like sleep deprivation, which can be equally deadly as drunk driving, be careful on the roads peeps.
