A Whiskey Tango Fox Moment
Yup--gotta agree with you there. As to the husband's repeated assertion that his late wife "did everything right"...pulling over under a bridge was ill-advised. She would have been much better off pulling off the highway somewhere else--because (a) she would have got further off the road and (b) I'm almost certain she would have been more visible.
The "under a bridge" part rang false with me right away. I had to wait until my drive home tonight to confirm my suspicions. Most bridge abutments are close to the road, making for a narrower shoulder, not a wider one.Also if the driver of the plow saw the car and managed to swing wide, she would still have been pelted with several hundred pounds of snow that could of buried her or knocked her unconcious.A) she shouldn't have been on the highway in the first placeB) If she needed to stop, she should have gotten off the highway.Being pulled over during a bright sunny day is dangerous enough, during a snow storm is downright suicidal. As was proven....
