Since Pat Fan seemed to have been there when it happened can you tell me if it looked like she tried doing the whole walk in one go? I can't understand why she would have continued to walk across on the Eastbound side with a car really close to her.

I just hope she wasn't texting while she was walking across

Does anyone know how this happened? Was she walking alone at night or with other students? What did the police have to say about this accident?

jr14 you are incredibly disrepectful and casual about a tragic situation that has upset many at our school. Colleen was a beautiful, kind and bright individual who always had a smile for everyone. To hear you reduce her passing to a craving for beer is shameful and disgusting. Regardless of her reasons, another life has been lost on route9 and the town needs to put a crossing light there. Many of the students have vowed to use the footbridge, but im sure many wont because its further away. Again colleen was an amazing and promising young woman and we will not stand for disrespect.

This is a horrible tragedy that has happened and my thoughts go out to all of Colleen's friends and families. But the truth is that she shouldn't have been crossing there. If students want to cross Rte 9 they should do so at the pedestrian bridge. The town should not have to use police resources (an absolutely horrible suggestion) or install crossing lights that will just cause more traffic on Rte 9 or install another bridge a few hundred feet away. Are the people suggesting these things anyone who actually pays taxes? Also, think about the drivers of those vehicles. It is extremely difficult to see at night in this area and I'm sure they did all that they could. Now they have to live the rest of their lives knowing that they killed someone, be it accidentally.
