It was a Pontiac Vibe that rear-ended the big red truck. Truck had stopped at the light, the Vibe didn't slow down much. Fatality was the driver of thr Vibe.

After reviewing my information and talking to some others I see why my earlier information was wrong. I was told facts based on how they saw the cars sitting after the fact which can sometimes be very misleading.

Next time I will either see myself or wait till I can get info from a crediable source before stating.

My condolences as well to the Lawrence family.
