Always sad when such things happen. She was far from her family also, which will make it even more difficult for their family. Accidents with vehicles killing a ton of people all over the world. Several measures have been taken in many countries, car safety is way better than it used to be, and yet...

This was a tragic accident. She was just 42 years old. Too young to die. Condolences to the bereaved family and friends. Remembering her wonderful and gentle soul will forever remain in our hearts. May she rest in peace.

I have never understood idiots who drive faster when visibility is reduced due to fog. Are so rushed that they forget that there are other cars on the road. Many accidents due to lack of attention to driving under reduced visibility and so people die. Now the family of this woman goes through a drama. Condolences for his family.
