Some more on that freak accident

Falling concrete slab kills pregnant bank employee

The woman killed was Stephanie Hufnagel, 22. She is survived by her husband, Brian, and 18-month-old daughter, Raigann. They were expecting their second daughter, to be named Sydney, any day now. The concrete slab, weighing several tons, fell when a pickup truck struck it as the driver was trying to park. The concrete fell from the second floor of a parking garage, onto Hufnagel, killing her instantly. That has got to be the only consolation in all this. Hufnagel was bringing food from her car to the bank where she worked and had arrived early to build up comp time for when she had the baby.

So sad. So freaky. My thoughts go out to her family and to those involved. I can't imagine being the driver who hit the wall, either. It's just so sad.
