We should always avoid rushing to judgement when there is so little info to go on. There is a suggestion that the driver may have passed out. It also seems that the cyclists had to move out from the edge of the road as there was a boat trailered there. Maybe the riders moved out into the path of a moving vehicle to avoid the boat without due care. Maybe the driver drove recklessly. Maybe the driver had a preexisting condition she knew of and should have handed in her license some time ago. Maybe she passed out but with no previous history to suggest it. Maybe maybe maybe. A lot of maybes until we know more.
In the meantime I can also feel for the driver. And so can the media. There are many victims in road deaths. Besides, it is almost certainly true that the driver was upset.
Concern is not like a bucket of money where as we spend it we have less to go around.
