We should be cutting paths with the 1b money. We have to make this county more pedestrian friendly.
My condolences to the family. Total tragedy.
Yes...forget any paving projects or Bypasses (even though it's different money) and make this County safe for pedestrians and bikers. It is become "beyond" dangerous.
Mt Brow road is nothing more than a glorified driveway, and Jamestown Rd has no shoulders. Most other County roads have poor visibility due to trees and shrubs growing out into the roadways.
This is truly a tragedy.
My condolences as well.
Very sad. I totally agree with skidmoore on paths for joggers and bikes.
The jogger was a wonderful person. What a terrible loss. My heart goes out to her family.
How terrible, very sad this happened.
I could not agree more from the above comments, as a county we should be stripping our roadways or a plan to build safe walkways and bike Lanes as apart of our transportation plan. Prayers to the family.
Along the same thought, we need to slow down the express way in downtown Sonora.

We need a park for joggers,the roads up here for jogging are terrible,this is unfortunate l,my heart goes out too the family,my sincere condolences,sorry for your lost,my prayers are with the family...:-(:-(:-(
So very sad:( Yes sweet sweet person very sad my heart goes out to her family
In soulsbyville the people along soulsbyville road had to make a statement to the whole freaking county by posting 25 mile per hour signs and sitting alongside the road just to convince everyone to slow down! It is sad that we all live here, we all know what its like to live on little country roads, WHY CANT ANYONE SLOW DOWN?! no need for new roads or shoulders just better drivers, maybe invest more in catching people speeding over DUIs and seat belts...
My prayers are with her family. What a horrible tragedy.
So sad my heart goes out to their families. if your out there driving make sure your attention is on the road and not distracted . living in the mountains there are always blind curves so watch at all times.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of this young woman. Very tragic.
My condolences to the family. I drive this road to work. Most people drive way to fast on this route. They consider it a "short cut" to Jamestown and beyond, to avoid going through downtown. It's a rural area, people should only drive as fast as safety allows. Especially when there are joggers or bicyclists, please, don't be so concerned about getting to your destination so quickly.
I feel sad for her young child.
My whole heart goes out to the families. I am so sorry for your loss :(
Ah, this breaks my heart - I often saw a little gal jogging here. My prayers for her family.
So sorry for this lady and her family. This hits home for me as I also run every morning and have had some close calls. People drive way to fast and have no regard for others! God Bless this family they will be in my prayers.
My thoughts and prayers for the whole family. She was a wonderful person and mother.
This is indeed a terrible tragedy. No words will bring that young woman back. But, as the investigation is still in process, let's not rush to judgement. We do not know that the driver was speeding, texting, drinking, etc.. Mt. Brow is a terrible 'road', and tragically, accidents do happen. My prayers go out to all the families involved.
I'm so sad for both people involved and both families. It must be heart breaking for the driver as well as the family of the jogger. My wife and I were on our way home last night and saw a person walking, I saw them way to late if they were out any further in the road, wearing Dark clothing and they just blended into the darkness. I don't see anyone jogging on phoenix lake road thank goodness because they wouldn't have a chance. I plead for everyone who drives that road to please slow down, It's only a mater of time before someone is killed on that road. All my family drives that road and it's so amazing to witness how fast people drive. The highway patrol hangs out there but not often enough. Fines should be very high in populated arias. just so sad. SLOW DOWN PLEASE.
So very sad.... I pray for the Lord to give her family strength at this difficult time. I did not know this young woman, but my heart aches and tears flows for her familys loss. I could not even imagine. I live on Mt. Brow... I have to agree vehicles travel way to fast, even the big rigs on Jamestown rd. I had the CHP out here a few times trying to slow drivers down on my street..... God Bless this Family!!!
I feel Very Very Sad for the family of the girl who lost her life. I'm also sad for the young lady that was driving the car. This is something she will have to live with her whole life and believe me it will allways haunt her. Its still dark that time of morning. I hope for all involved it was simply a very unfortunate, tragic accident.
When I come across a pedestrian or bicyclist I always slow down, move to the left, often a little over the double line if no traffic or turns are coming. I do this to protect all involved and to give the pedestrians a good buffer and a sense of safety. Most of the time I get a friendly wave of appreciation.
There was another jogger with the victim, so wonder why this isn't being reported. She would certainly be an expert eye witness to what really happened here.
