Rest in Paradise Judy. I hope Eddie makes a quick recovery. Him and Judy were actually my roommates for a bit. Judy is one of the coolest person I've met. I'm sure me and a couple
of her close friends could start up some type of donation for her funeral. She's in a better place now, just please keep your prayers with her and Eddie. Here are semi details about the crash.
RIP Judy Kim.
rips my heart out, i remember seeing the car several times this weekend.
i never met judy or eddie, but my thoughts are with both of them and i hope that eddie makes a speedy recovery.

This strikes the Dub heart just way too hard. It's so heart breaking to hear this.
My thoughts and prayers are out to their friends and family, and their VW group.
dont know either of them but RIP judy and have a speedy recovery eddie.
and if the driver of the lightning was driving like an Asshole when he hit them i hope he is punished to the fulest extent of the law for his actions!!
i hope someone has a picture of this young lady for us to see a smiling face or anything to remember her......not many of us know each other but these shows make us all ONE.
my friend called a guy an audi poser b/c of his headlights on his jetta and i reminded him quickly that, we're all a family at these shows, and it's not cool to stir the pot with our own. i wouldn't want anyone to say anything about my car that was a fellow dubber and while not everyone's taste is MINE, i def respect all of you guys and girls, the comraderie is what i live for in the summer at the shows.
let's remember that this type of situation could be ANY of us when we travel to shows. This is why we gotta keep it safe out there. Fun can go to tragedy in .01 secs.

The circumstances sound similar to the pit manuver that cops use on high speed chases, obviously we don't know if this truck driver did this intentionally or by accident, but i could see these results from that sort of driving, if he did something criminal, i hope he gets the book thrown at him.

[QUOTE=s4boost;77484578]i think you misunderstood me like Haggard said. my point was that a guy in a ford lightening may have been trying to race them because of the vehicle they were driving. It didnt say the time of day (other than early in the morning) or the road conditions. I was simply stating it would be tragic if someone was trying to be reckless around them (seeing as how the driver of the ford got cited for reckless driving) and caused them to spin and crash, which is technically vehicular homicide. I'm sure further investigation will be done to verify that possibility. I have no idea what happened, and if you werent there you dont either. I'm assuming, considering your location in the country, that you are friends with them. I'm sorry for your loss. I hope you understand that i wasnt saying anything to place blame. It is strange however that the driver of the truck was close enough to them in the rain at night to cause them to crash. Really sounds to me like the truck driver tried to race them spun the backend and rain into them causing them to hit the median. just my opinion. Also the truck drivers most recent status update was about his hp/tq numbers so he was definitely an enthusiast.
I believe its a little soon to even be talking about details like this. Lets keep it at what you said and focus on the support. I am a close friend and this whole thread makes me angry.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Judy and her family. and Eddie, hang in there! we're praying for you as well. I really hate to hear something like this go down after an amazing weekend full of dubs, family, and fun. it IS however, nice to see fellow dubbers across the country come together to wish this couple and their families condolences. i'm totally down to donate to help out in any way i can.
