I have to admit.I have good days and I have bad days. Today has not been a good day for a multitude of reasons. The children are asking more questionsQuestions she finds hard to answer. She says they adds to the pain of why this tragedy happened.A Glynn County engineer says Georgia Department of Transportation is responsible for 300 feet of right of way off Blythe Island Highway.A month and half later, a spokesperson with GDOT responded to that direct claim.In an email she says quote: The tree did originate from GDOT right-of-way. However, the tree being on the right-of-way does not necessarily correlate with why or how it fell. Where the tree is located has nothing to do with what factors caused the tree to fall.Miller says the trees in that area are old, rotten and should have been cut down before this accident. She wants to know why GDOT is not taking responsibility in keeping this from happening to someone else.CM 2:44 The last part of that statement infuriates me because it's an oxy moronic statement. I'm sorry but? CM 5:49 The only answers or communications I am getting remotely are through you. Channel 4 News. That's the only way I would have known that it was DOT property or the statement you just read. I would have been oblivious, because they are not saying anything to us. I also reached out to the other victim's family they say D-O-T has not communicated with them either. So what does the victim's family plan to do now?Answer:The Miller family tells me they have obtained a lawyer and they will be pursuing their legal options.
