Negligence, crossing the center line

On June 22 2009 a 1990 Toyota Camry driven by Maria ArauJo-Sanchez (age 28) was heading westbound when she crossed the center line and ran head-on into a semi driven by Glenn Strum of Breda, Ia. Maria and her two passengers Bertha Sanchez-Moreno (56) and Daniel Resendiz (12) died at the scene. The semi driver Glenn Strum was taken to Crawford County Memorial where he was treated and released. You have to see photographs of the car to fully appreciate the force of impact. It’s difficult to believe it was once a car. The linked news source shows the images.


There are three fatalities and no explanation or way of knowing why she crossed the center line. Was she attempting to pass or distracted or was there equipment failure?
