    Seriously the drivers in Turlock are so stupid lately. STOP SPEEDING! It literally gets 5 minutes to get from one end to the other of this small town with speed limit. It has gotten SO bad lately. I see people speeding in parking lots now too! Speeding and not paying attention while you're driving is the most selfish thing you can do. If you don't care about yourself that's fine, but there are other people on the road too!

    I realize that road closures can be somewhat important, but to show pictures of a person who has just been run over by a car (at this point it doesn't matter as to blame since things happen which is why they are called ACCIDENTS) but for the parties involved AND their families this is horrific! This is not reporting news, this is posting sensational pictures of someone dying (yes, she did die) so that people can post opinions over something they have absolutely no factual information about. How pathetic is our society that we have absolutely no compassion for either the people involved or their families! I know, let us just post a picture of you or a loved one dying and then let people just go on and on with their opinion of what happened, who is at fault, yadda yadda...Take two seconds before you post your opinion and think about it if was you or your loved one. The bottom line here is that a wonderful, generous, funny and full of life woman lost her life today in a horrific way and now her family and the other party involved have to know that these pictures are out there for the public to not only view but to opine about something they have no knowledge of. This should not be called Turlock City News but The Turlock Gossip. We, as a human beings, should be ashamed of ourselves.

    ^^To the person who was upset about this post, I don't see a name or a photo of the woman who was hit. It doesn't show the woman dying. It doesn't even say if it is a male or a female. it just has the damaged vehicle and the overall scene (it is really clear up at the top). It makes sense to be upset about people making rude comments, but this was a very standard and unbiased post informing people of the accident. I don't really see a reason to call this specific post gossip since other media sources also posted very similar pictures. Try not taking things out on the messenger next time.
