Yeah, there was another factor. She wasn't wearing a seatbelt. If she was, she probably would be alive considering she would be in the truck rather than the truck on top of her.
I know we get mad at the husband for drinking and driving but this could have been prevented. Even if he hadn't been drinking, this still may have happened since he swerved to miss the dog.
May this be a reminder to everyone - wear your seatbelt when you're in a car!!!
Let's be clear here - she died because she wasn't wearing a seatbelt, not because he husband was drinking. That may have been a factor in his decision making and how he reacted to the dog. However, that wasn't why she died. A truck landed on top of her and killed her because she wasn't inside of it!
