    the likelihood that this woman didn't have a phone is exceedingly small. And if she didn't have a phone, getting one later is pretty easy. This story barely holds up

    the way i see it, being chased by a crazy guy with a gun leaves little choice: survive or die. that's not much of a choice, and in that situation **** happens.


    stretching it? why? the fatal crash resulted from her evading her armed & obviously dangerous ex-boyfriend. if he drove under the bicyclist's body before it hit the ground, he knows he's in some deep ****, if he gets caught. it would seem odd if he didn't threaten her to not report it. is he just gonna sit around and wait for the police to show up? or would he be motivated to tell her to keep quiet... or else?

    as for whether or not that (and/or other factors) would absolve her for not reporting the crash, again, that's for a court to decide, based on evidence that we don't have access to.
    Some will say this is blaming the victim and perhaps they are right....BUT it doesn't say much for this woman to be involved with this dude in the first place.

    You're being unreasonable... this is the internet. She should hang or at the very least have her life ruined.

    While I'm all for a good virtual hanging, it looks like we're a bit late for settling for ruining her life. It's done been ruined already.
