This is sad.

Even if the store clerk knew she was driving, I don't know if legally there was anything she could have done to stop her getting into her car and driving away.

Was her husband aware of her condition? Was she recovering from recent back surgery or was she taking medication long term? Just wondering why she was so imparded that early in the morning and why no one was watching her?
