  • Lot of talk negative about the diver being 91. I know someone who is 92 that is a far superior driver than you bumper tailgaters who cut you short and can’t wait to get out in front and then go the same speed as the one passed. Look in the mirror and make sure it’s clean before you make negative comments that will come to bite you some day.

  • When my 88 year old mother realized she shouldn’t drive anymore, she voluntarily stopped. She was dead six months later….she just gave up the will to live, if she couldn’t have her independence!
    Sad for this lady, but glad she and no one else was injured in the crash!

  • Funny, Dennis! I do grocery shopping for several people who have given up their vehicles. The small fee I have to charge is usually equal to the coupons and deals at the store.

      • Lmao

      • Dennis, I am thankful that the lady is ok and no one else was hurt! May you be blessed to live to be 91 yrs old and have all your faculties to remember your not so funny post. Guess your parents and grandparents are already dead. Sorry for you. No I don’t think she should be driving, especially on these great race tracks we have here. No one is safe on these roads and it can only get worse, as no deputies seem to ticket anyone, let alone follow the traffic laws themselves. Be well, may you always have your teeth and never ever pee your pants. and most of all, hope you never have heart trouble!! Nighty nite boy.

        • AgainDENNIS.You must have peed your pants and cant remember your name as that post is retarded.I am mire dumb now just from reading it.The smell is most likely you

          Thursday, 16 March 2017, 9:38 pm
          • See what I mean I mispelled mire.

            Thursday, 16 March 2017, 9:39 pm
      • To funny Dennis! That really does happen, my mother in law is 78 with a great sense of humor and she’ll text me H.A.S.M. ( having a senior moment )

        Friday, 17 March 2017, 1:30 pm
    • She probably wouldn’t know how to use one at her age. 😮 too old school to figure it out.

      Thursday, 23 March 2017, 12:49 am
  • OMG I think it’s time to give up the license. What if there had been a pedestrian or a Motorcycle etc…

    Thursday, 16 March 2017, 2:50 pm
  • Diane are you serious????? There needs to be a yearly test after a certain age. My grandma willingly, voluntarily have up her license when she felt she couldn’t see well enough anymore….but not everyone does that. How often do you hear of people that AREN’T elderly just randomly losing control of their vehicle…..or plowing into homes and stores????? Get a grip.

    Thursday, 16 March 2017, 2:46 pm
    • Frequently in Hernando County. Don’t you read Tom’s articles?

      Thursday, 16 March 2017, 4:16 pm
  • People may point fingers about this sad event and her age but just remember, We all will be thrust into that reality regarding being older and still needing to get around, Will you just step forward and give up your drivers licence, It’s a tough choice going from being independent to now needing someone to take you from place to place.

    Thursday, 16 March 2017, 2:34 pm
  • Glad lady is ok.. Didnt need that cross walk sign anyways cause no one pays attention

    Thursday, 16 March 2017, 2:04 pm
  • THIS IS SO SAD THIS POOR WOMAN HAS JUST LOST HER INDEPENDENCE !! I KNOW THAT THERE DOES COME A TIME YOU HAVE TO GIVE UP DRIVING LETS JUST THANK GOD NO ONE WAS HURT !!!

    Thursday, 16 March 2017, 1:52 pm
  • I guess younger drivers do not lose control of their vehicles? Why was the fact that she was elderly the first word in the title? Over this age discrimination. I see more rollovers with people under 50 in them than I do over.

    Thursday, 16 March 2017, 1:37 pm
    • Amen Diane ~~ I so agree with you ~~~

      Thursday, 16 March 2017, 3:07 pm
    • It’s not age age discrimination it’s a friggin adjective is 91 not considered elderly? I swear everyone is always butt hurt about everything quit being so thin skinned the journalist did not say the accident took place because the person was elderly it just said and elderly person was in an accident how about a comment like glad nobody was hurt or thank god the driver is ok instead of becoming the victim of “discrimination” which clearly doesn’t exist here

      Thursday, 16 March 2017, 3:33 pm
      • OMG THANK YOU

        Thursday, 16 March 2017, 6:40 pm
      • Elderly isn’t pc anymore I guess.

        Thursday, 16 March 2017, 7:22 pm
    • Yes younger drivers have rollovers because a elderly person hit them and made them roll.Hope she is ok

      Thursday, 16 March 2017, 4:20 pm
  • ninety one!!!!

    Thursday, 16 March 2017, 1:19 pm
  • 91?! I’m not surprised there was an accident. Thank God there wasn’t people waiting at that crosswalk!!!

    Thursday, 16 March 2017, 12:55 pm
    • MELANIE SHE MAY BE A LITTLE OLD TO BE RIDING A HARLEY 🙁

      Thursday, 16 March 2017, 4:19 pm
