    I live in Carolina Pines, and this was bound to happen. It's a very nasty intersection that has had it's troubles in the past. Trying to turn left onto hwy 70 from Caroliba Pines Blvd is a task and requires skill during rush hour.

    So sorry for the family. My grandfather was killed just about this time last year on Hwy 17 when he pulled out in front of someone. Sorry for your loss and for the individual that hit her. God Bless You all.

    Ms. Margaret was a regular where I worked. It is so sad to know we won't see her coming through those doors every afternoon. Prayers to her family. :(
