ps Post me if you hear of any others
I know this is an old post, but i feel i have to correct this. Your information about the crash being because of the "cruise control" is wrong. Thats what she said to police during the investigation. She went to prison for vehicular homicide because the investigation decided that she was at fault for the accident and was negilent in her driving. Eye witness statements provided to police said she was driving in an aggressive manner and speeding prior to the crash, and the one boy in the vehicle at the time of the crash had stated that he usually felt unsafe in her vehicle.
