Reminder every time I pass there

A few days ago, my brothers sister-in-law died in a single car accident on a San Diego freeway. Just so happens that the exit where she died, is the same exit I take to go jet skiing at our local bay. It is assumed that she passed out after having just dropped off some people at Sea World. For unknown reasons her car spun out of control, went down a small embankment, through some trees, crashed through a fence and hit a pole. A witness pulled her out of the vehicle, and preformed CPR, but to no avail. Paramedics also arrived on the scene, and they couldn't revive her. It's thought that possibly she had a heart attack while driving. She was in her mid 40's. Her funeral is this weekend. Tragic.
