She has to face the consequences no matter what she may or may not suffer from. She obviously suffers from stupidity. What do you mean if someone would have been seriously hurt? What about the driver of the truck she purposely crashed her car into? He might have some cuts and bruises but what about mental anguish caused by that stupid broad? There should be no leniency for those found to be mentally impaired. Sue her and make her life an even worse hell for being an idiot LOSER.

She should not be victimized twice as obvisouly she suffers from mental issues. If someone would have been seriously hurt then it would have been a different story.
This individual did endanger lives but at the same time she will already be paying for her mistakes financially and for the rest of her life.
There is such a fine line between dealing with citizens concerning mental health issues and criminal punishment if its warranted in this case.
