Gawker: Young Bride-to-Be Killed in Car Crash On Way to Bachelorette Party

Deets:

"Bride-to-be Collette Moreno, 26, died in a car crash on the way to her bachelorette party this weekend, KCTV reports. Moreno's best friend, Ashley Theobald, was driving. Moreno (pictured above, left) took a selfie just before the crash.

Theobald told KCTV she collided with another vehicle after trying to pass a truck — she says the truck's exhaust fumes were giving Moreno an asthma attack. "We both thought it was clear and there was a hill that neither one of us saw. I tried to go around and there was a truck coming and I swerved and he swerved with me," she said."

More . . . According to the Daily Mail, Moreno was set to marry Jesse Arcobasso in Jamaica on July 26th. Moreno's five-year-old son lived with the couple.

It should be illegal to have a cell phone turned on in a vehicle except for the purposes of emergency, potentially life saving communication. Cell phones are a factor in accidents in numbers that far exceed those involving alcohol, but we justify the validity of these little boxes with convenience. If I had a quarter for every time I have to manoeuvre around or dodge some moron with a cell phone I'll have a piggy bank full. What the hell is so urgent that a person must spend their lives hugging a freaking phone?

Sorry for all those involved. Good picture though. Pretty ladies. I don't have a word for selfie before death. Technically it is an two-sie because there are two people.

Again, sorry to all those involved.

Why was the driver passing in a no-passing zone? THAT was the problem - ignoring traffic laws. Although I agree with you about cell phones being a very dangerous distraction. God bless her family. So very sad.

Nothing quite as dangerous behind the wheel as a millennial with a smart phone.

244 Truth.

My GPS has a factory default that makes programing impossible while moving. It can be switched off, but the technology seems to be available to address texting and driving.

I am assuming there is not an interest group arguing eight to communicate.

Cell phones are the new cigarettes, the drink to an alcoholic, the line of cocaine to an addict. My God, have you seen what it does when you take a phone away from a kid? It borders on abuse! There are even a lot of adults that will experience delerium tremors (DT's) if they are separated from their phones for a little while. We truly have outsmarted ourselves with these technological conveniences that are in place today. And FUCK FACEBOOK! I can't stand that shit.

It had nothing to do with a cell phone. The driver wasn't on the cell phone texting or anything and lost control. She tried to pass a semi and paid the price for being careless. Now she has to pay the rest of her life losing her best friend.
