Terrible tragedy. I think that many people are unaware how much hearing contributes to awareness on the road. I fly airplanes, where there are obviously no audio cues as far as traffic goes. You need to keep a constant, and I mean constant lookout for other planes, and even then, sometimes you don't see them until they're very close. Same thing goes for all the jet-ski vs boats accidents you hear about. People simply aren't used to using only they're eyes to keep safe.
