On July 26, 2009 Diane Schuler packed up the campsite, piled five children into her minivan and headed for home on Long Island after a weekend of camping, a drive that should have taken two hours from upstate, NY. Four hours later, she sped down the Taconic State Parkway in Westchester County driving in the wrong direction. As panicked motorists swerved out of her way, she continued for almost two miles. Blowing horns, flashing lights, and waving arms did nothing to deter her. Rounding a curve in the road, she rocketed head on into an oncoming SUV. The vehicles seemed to explode as they hit. The minivan plunged downhill and burst into flames as the SUV was pushed across two lanes and struck by another SUV. In the smoldering vehicle and twisted metal scattered along the highway, lay the bodies of eight people. Days later came the headlines; "Wrong Way Crash Mom Drunk and High!"

Please hear what I have to say, if Diane has an abscesed tooth , she could have been comatose. I just recently suffered from sepsis due to 2 abscesed teeth. I was " out of it" for 4-5 days.I was in so much pain, I think I actually died. Please get in touch with me so I can tell you my story. I think she might have gone through the same hell! I'm so sorry for your loss.
