NORTH FORT MYERS-Fla.-" I heard a loud thug it sounded like two trucks colliding," said neighbor Daniel Bustin. He describes what he heard when Lorraine Scofield slammed into this tree while behind the wheel of her ATV last night.
Bustin said, "I noticed two headlights wrapped around a tree. I walked closer and saw a woman lifeless." He gave her CPR, but it was too late.
Today family and friends brought flowers to the crash site. Teri Smith is the oldest of Scofield's six children, "She has been riding them all her life, you know she is a very responsible driver, she never goes fast. I think she just lost control."
FHP said Scofield ran the stop sign at Ghish Lane and Tolles Drive. Troopers said the 51-year old then collided with a fence. In the end, she was thrown off her ATV.
Less than 24 hours after the crash, her family remembers how she made them smile. "She was a great woman she would take her shoes off an let you walk ten-thousand miles in them. She was a great person- an amazing person," said Smith.
