The SUV that was hit flipped over and trapped a 45-year old woman inside. A nurse and neighbors found that woman turning blue, so they flipped the SUV over. She was taken to a local hospital, but she later died. Her 46-year old husband was also taken to the hospital.

The woman that police say caused the crash had a 4-year old and 8-year old child in the car with her. Police say there were no child car seats. None of them were hurt badly.

Police say the driver could face serious charges.

its true just 3 months ago a women cut inn front of me when i was on my way to work and it was right inn front of the police station on osborne she was trying to go from one parking lot to an other and she had a infinty her car was nicer and way newer then mine and she had no insurance that made me so mad and me with my used car that id just barely bought 91 crouger it was nice for an old car that id just got 2weeks prior im still awaiting for that trial and believe me she is going to pay.

As I said this woman needs to be made an example of! By doing so Jaime Esparza would send a clear message that Cell Phone use while driving is prohibited and breaking the law in which another human being was seriously injured or killed will result in Prosecution to the fullest extent of the law! Just last Sunday I was almost T-boned by a woman in car that ran a red light and was on the phone on Alameda! As she drove by the phone slid out of her hand and she looked startled but she sped away!

Jaime Esparza needs to do his job and prosecute this woman to the fullest extent of the law! Criminal Negligent Homicide should be the charge further aggravated by the culprits disregard for a municipal ordinance prohibiting cell phone use while driving! Through her negligence she deprived another human being of the right to live a long and fruitful life! Furthermore she should also be charged with Abandon/Endangering in the negligence of not properly securing her children in car seats.

This is ridiculous El Pasoans! People need to start watching where they're going and having respect for the lives of others. I was just t-boned a couple of months ago, by someone who wasn't watching where they were going. Seriously people, you wanna do harm to your self, do it at home and save everyone else the heartache.
