Storyline

The accident made national headlines: a suburban mother drove the wrong way on the Taconic Parkway in upstate New York and crashed head-on into an SUV, killing herself and seven others. In the aftermath, Diane Schuler was portrayed as a reckless drunk and a mother who cracked. But was she the monster the public made her out to be...or the perfect wife and mother that many say she was? Investigating the case six months after the accident, this documentary searches for answers to a mysterious and senseless tragedy.

Sad but the answer is in the film
12 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Well done film, but as others have mentioned, the Schuler family is less than forthcoming. The answer to why is fairly obvious...She developed severe pain from an abscessed tooth. I have had that and know how extremely painful that can be. It can look a a lot like your head hurts as the pain shoots thru your skull. She took whatever she had in the car in an attempt to ease the pain. She stopped at the gas station to try and find some pain killers but could not find any. Then she decided to use some pot she probably had kept in her purse in a further attempt to ease the pain. She probably felt she was responsible for the kids and didn't want to stop somewhere and hoped to just ride it out till she got home. But the pain and the vodka and the pot all mixed together and she became delusional and incoherent.

Her husband probably feels if he admits to anything he will be open to lawsuits. It's obvious he has deep seated anger towards her but can't display it so he buries it deep inside, that will erupt one day.
