    1) the vehicle is struck severely (not the case)

    2) or you jump

    I have been driving for 36 years, have near a million miles behind the wheel as a driver, several hundred K more as a passenger and I cannot recall ever having a car door open unintentionally while driving nor have I ever seen a door open on an interstate on another car though I do note that when I was 5 or so (I know I was under 6 because it was at my grandmother's house and she died when I was six) my youngest brother-than 2 or 3 opened the door as we were pulling out of her driveway and fell out-he didn't want to leave grandma.
    I have seen news stories of people unbuckling and jumping out of a car to escape something bad happening inside the vehicle. It's just a strange way to kill yourself... If she did kill herself in that fashion, it is very, very sad. It seems like a split second decision, because when people spent time considering suicide, they probably don't think of jumping out of a car as the way to go. I have heard that most women OD on pills, and men, I believe, typically kill themselves with a gun. Suicide is so horrible. I feel bad for those children and husband.

I have to take an emergency phone call right now.
    I know how holidays can bring out a lot of dark things in people. I went to the store for a few things and it was so crowded... everything sold out. It was ridiculous and there were people with empty shopping carts blocking all the aisles, just staring at shelves... no employees were there to answer where they moved their usual items for all the seasonal crap. I was eventually boiling over with anger and stress. I so just wanted to scream out, "get out of my ****ing way and move your ****ing cart." It was so annoying and stressful. What should have been 15 minutes of shopping was 45 minutes of walking around, bumping into strangers, and waiting in line. I hate the holidays because of stuff like that.

    many drivers have serious cases of cranial-rectal inversion syndrome around the malls this time of the year. Two days ago a woman turning right in front of me was looking right rather than at the road behind her as I was rapidly approaching the side street where she decided to pull ot of without even seeing the traffic. fortunately I had

    1) brand new tires

    2) a recent brake job

    3) and extremely fast reflexes for a 52 year old (at 20 I had the fastest reaction time [tested by hitting a button when you saw a light] of any athlete tested that year at the USOTC at Colorado springs)

    and was able to avoid ramming a lexus going 45 miles an hour into the driver's side of a chevy driven by some woman with a serious case of such a disease.

    she looked like ET had jumped on her hood when I slammed on the AL brakes and hit the horn and swerved around her. totally dazed and confused

    Could be anything, but I'd bet on it being related to money or infidelity. It's a sad thing no matter what the reason. I mean the kids, those lives are ruined.

    Re: brutal suicide in near my home: woman jumps out of SUV on I-75 in Cincinnati area

    Such a sad story. Wow. I feel so badly for the children, and it's sad that there is so much importance placed on having everything perfect. I worked with a guy in Syracuse a few years ago who killed himself at Christmastime. He had two small children, a boy and a girl. He drove out to the lake and swallowed a bullet. Suicide is so selfish. So selfish.

    There's so much pressure to make sure that everything is just perfect, and lots of kids are raised in a manner that they aren't thankful for what they have, or what they are given. I see so many people who have kids who demand certain items, and act out if they don't get it. My kids don't make lists. They give me suggestions on things that they would like, and I work around it, but I don't fill "lists." It takes away from the spirit of the season, in my opinion.

    Anyway, I feel sorry for the little family she ruined. Selfish, selfish woman.

    had something similar happen to me last year except all I could do was steer my car into a snow bank!

    not always true. I knew a guy who had ALS who killed himself. It saved his family from having to both see him waste away for another one or two years, and the expense of round the clock nursing care.

    My dad died after a year long battle with a cancer he contracted from smoking that was in his sinuses, throat etc. He gradually lost his ability to speak, then had to have a trach tube, which caused a massive MERSA infection (the tube put in at the ER room was not properly sterilized according to his main doctor) that ultimately killed him. Four days before he died he wrote a note saying "Give me your Beretta". ( the gun I carried at the time) I wouldn't but I can understand how some people would want to end a no win situation under somewhat their own terms.

    I wouldn't have seen a suicide by my father at that time as selfish

    On the other hand, my mother contracted pneumonia a year later and refused treatment despite the fact that even with COPD and a poorly healed shoulder fracture 6 years before she died, she still had pretty good quality of life. I really was bitter when she died because she took from my son his only remaining grandmother and unlike her other grandkids-two of whom lived thousand of miles away and another two who really didn't like going to her home (she was a smoker and it really bothered them) He really enjoyed her company and spent hours each week with her and he had a hard time dealing with that especially after he saw his grandfather fight hard to stay alive until (as I noted) four days before he died and after the doctors told him that they could not stop the infection
