Prayer Need

Teen Kills Woman During Suicide Attempt
A lovesick 16-year-old girl crashed her car into an oncoming vehicle in a suicide attempt, counting down the moments before impact in text messages sent to the female classmate who spurned her, authorities say. The girl survived; a woman in the other car was killed.

Authorities said Brunstad rammed her family's Mercedes-Benz head-on into a smaller car driven by 30-year-old Nancy Salado-Mayo, a mother of three. Salado-Mayo was killed, and her 6-year-old daughter Lesly, who was in a child safety seat, suffered broken ribs and other injuries.

  1. OMG how awful!

    When I was at my worst, I'd often think of just jerking the wheel into the path of an oncoming vehicle. The thought that this would be a likely result was what stayed my hand more times than I can count.

    Prayers, prayers, prayers. For the woman's family. For the girl who now has to live with herself. For those around her who are kicking themselves for not having seen how troubled she was.

    Prayers, prayers, prayers.
