Nicole Tartaglio, a member of the VVNG Facebook group, commented the following:

“It wasn’t the red Camaro, it was a black Camaro that was the cause of the accident. The black Camaro was weaving in and out of traffic, coming up the hill. He came so up fast behind me I thought he was going to rear-end us. He almost took out my bumper before he switched lanes & continued to weave in and out of traffic. That’s when I saw him run another car off the road then swerved back into lanes…that’s when the car started to flip. It happened a few cars in front of us. Unfortunately, I saw everything that happened. I was in the slow lane when I came upon the innocent woman who lost her life. I pulled over to check on her & to shield her from other cars but people didn’t like that and started honking at me to move my car. I checked her for a pulse, sadly, there wasn’t one. I stayed with her as long as I was able to…I didn’t want to leave her alone. Once CHP started their investigations we had to leave. I want her family to know how deeply sorry I am for their loss and to know that she wasn’t alone. I was there with her, I didn’t leave her side.”
