Six-Year-Old Girl Killed In Rollover Crash In Auburn

    This is terrible. My thoughts go out for the child, and her family in the car that were injured. Another terrible recent highway tragedy, and in this case another SUV that became a destructive weapon on the highway. When will these giant roadhog of vehicles be banished from roads, including for endangering also those who are driving or driving in them?!
