    What a terrible accident. Exit 2222 can get very busy when people are exiting off I-35. I hope the police know who was driving the Dodge Ram that rear ended her, or figure it out with a call from any eye witnesses. Once they figure out who the other driver was, her family needs to get an Austin injury attorney and take the driver to court.
