Woman caused SR-67 fatal crash as means of suicide, officials report

An East County freeway collision that killed two people last week was intentionally caused by one of the drivers as a means of killing herself, the Medical Examiner’s Office reported Monday.

Trista Lynn Stier, 29, purposely drove her pickup the wrong way and at high speed on state Route 67 in Lakeside about 3:15 p.m. Friday and crashed it into an oncoming truck just south of Winter Gardens Boulevard, according to the county agency.

Medics took Stier and the other driver, 49-year-old Douglas Menegos of Alpine, to trauma centers, where both were pronounced dead later in the afternoon.

The medical examiner ruled Stier’s death a suicide. The reason for that determination was not made public.

    I get so tired of stupid people. Take yourself out, leave others alone. Idiot.

      That's a pretty stupid, sick way of thinking. How about we stop those who want to take themselves out as well?

        No it's not. She selfishly took this man away from his family and loved ones. Did she think about others? No. The pain she would cause? No. Simply about herself. A selfish act.

        It's not stupid or sick, "Duckie". I am sick and tired of people who have to hurt others simply because their lives suck. Get help. Get over it. How about the lives she destroyed of innocent people?

        How about selfish people realize the world doesn't revolve around them?

        This is MY opinion. I don't need your approval.
