gotta a call from the police tonight
i have managed to stay outta trouble, but they need a witness statement. i saw an accident about 4 months ago, and sadly the statement is for the coroners report.
was sitting at lights on roe highway (for those in WA) and and old guy suddenly turned right across traffic. his excel got hit very hard by a bloke in a ute, spun this car 4 or 5 times over a couple of kerbs. anyway, the old guy didnt see the red arrow and just turned. well, it appears that the poor old fella got worse after he got to hospital and has now died.
it was a sad and needless waste of life. one minute this guy is going about his business, the next he is in an ambulance going to hospital. and all because of a short lapse in concentration. he could have been thinking about a thousand things...a potential wedding for a child or grandchild, the birth of a new grand child, what he is going to have for dinner, where he is going for hols, what he was going to get his wife for her birthday. then bang. no more.
the guy deserved to be shouted at, deserved to be fined and deserved a right bollocking. but nobody deserves to die for such a mistake.
further, the government could possibly start spending some of that money they make from speed cameras (yeah...your friggin cheque is in the mail) on fixing our roads. why the hell are there traffic lights on a major highway that carries truck s at 80kmh? why is there no overpass. mr gallop, mr court and every other stinking lowlife politiciian who has served in this state while this highway has traffic lights, i have something to say to you. all your bleating about road safety initiatives, all your bullshit about caring will NEVER get the blood off your hands.
finally, i hope i never see an accident like trhat again.
You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
