"Clearance Auto" will give you a break if you buy two or more types of insurance. You may also get a reduction if you have more than one vehicle insured with the same company.

Did you figure this person would need better insurance if she was gonna go around running people over??? How sad...I drive past that exact spot around that time every day coming home from work at St. Cats...25A has really wide shoulders going southbound around the curve right before Rumford and I always see people walking to close to traffic and cars that drive completely in the shoulder. Maybe the town needs to consider marking the shoulder better or something....It's NOT funny when peoples stupidity hurt others, as opposed to the girl who drove into the .99 store, which is still funny...

what was she doing in the middle of road, in the dark with no reflector vest?? an idea??

How do we not know the driver of the car wasn't using a cell phone or the lighting wasn't an issue. Placing blame on the victim because she was crossing the street seems unfair! What we should be doing is praying that the young women is getting a whole lot of prayers for a complete recovery and that her family have wonderfully supportive friends and family surrounding Brittany and her family.

actually the police clarified that she was not on her cell phone. also if you remember the rain that night was absolutely horrible. and the area is pretty dark..

I'm Brittney's Mom and I'd like to thank the Kings Park Fire Dept. EMT team for the excellent care she received at the scene. It's my understanding that your team is known as the ROCK STARS. We'd also like to thank our neighbors for stepping up, without hesitation to help with everything from babysitting to supplying meals. Brittney is still critical but stable. It's a miracle she's still with us. We have faith that in time she will find her way back to us. We sincerely appreciate all of your prayers and concerns. Please continue to keep Brittney and her two children in your thoughts. This has been especially hard for her 4 yr. old son and very sad for her 6 month old daughter who will celebrate her 1st Christmas without her. This was a horrible accident and we are not blaming anyone.

Love you britt <3 be strong I know you will pull through this and get home to the babies and your family. Your in my prayers and on my mind everyday girlie. I hope this can teach people to SLOW DOWN on that road it's not a nascar speedway. I don't know if speed was a factor but people still need to slow down to prevent this from happening to any other familys.
Sonny January 19, 2012 at 01:11 AM
Speed was not a factor in the accident as per the police report....it was just a tragic series of events between the fog, rain and the scene of the accident being on a pretty sharp curve in the road. My heart goes out to Britt and her family as well as the driver and her family.....horrible situaton all around for all.....God Bless
