fatality #3

on sunday there was an horrific car accident about 150 yards to the right of my house.


i knew that something terrible had occurred when i saw two helicopter air ambulances land in the field at the front of my house.


the road that runs in front of the house is an exceptionally busy and dangerous road.


it is very straight; car drivers and motorcyclists feel that this gives them some kind of licence to push their vehicles with respect to speed.


i have lived here for three and a half years now, and i have heard more ambulances than you.


the man who died was 35 years old.


his 3 year old daughter will not be entirely cognisant of his death until she is older.


she suffered life threatning injuries.


the above text has been amended.


it was wrong of me to presume the man was driving too fast.


every time i hear the ambulance sirens, i know lives will be changed irrevocably.
