  1. I have been following the Miki Cortez roundabout accident and it puzzles me how she could not have seen it the slow down nearing the section is evident the outside lane arrows you to merge and it is well lite. Did she have a stroke or heart problem prior to the impact? Was she texting? There are so many unanswered question. My deepest condolences to her family . Prayers ,light and love to you.
