34 year old Miriam Carey was killed in Washington DC yesterday after trying to drive her car through a barrier at the White House
. Miriam was driving with her one year old girl in the back seat. According to friends and relatives of Miriam she didn't have a violent bone in her body and had never been in trouble with the police but had been diagnosed with post-partum depression.
Miriam's mother thought Miriam was taking her daughter to a doctor's appointment and had no idea why her daughter would have driven from Connecticut down to Washington DC.
Her mother went on to say that Miriam got sick a few months after the birth and was even hospitalized because of her depression. Miriam was a dental hygienist who had taken the day off work.
