instead of a car on the other side of the road it just bad luck and a
terrible tragedy. If the girl makes the same mistake and runs of the
road into paddock how should she be punished?
Should her punisment for identical accidents be dependant on random
circumstance, on how unhappy they make someone else.
You're confusing actions with consequences.
If I take or fail to take an action that has undesireable consequences I'd expect the consequences to be a large factor in determining sentence.
