I'm so sorry about your friend. This is a hard time for all concerned. Life can change drastically in an instant. Right now, your friend's daughter may need her denial in order to keep on living.
The guilt from being the driver when others are hurt or killed is so massive that it takes immense courage to survive it. When you are 23, you are still too young to realize that it was an accident and that we are all vulnerable to accidents, no matter how perfect we are as drivers.
There is no particular time limit as to when people begin or end grieving. The whole grief process is so unique for each person. In general, however, shock comes first and the pain of grief does not hit us until the shock wears off, or until the denial is lifted. For some, that has taken years.
