Crash dummies again

mangled lexus 02Over the weekend, 2 police officers were  knocked over by a woman who allegedly bypassed a long line of traffic and sped  along the left shoulder, to run into two police officers who were directing traffic. One officer died instantly!

The rescue team had to cut out Dopson from under the truck. Body parts, and bones were left hooked onto the truck. Newsday.

From all accounts the woman was driving a Lexus car, although one newspaper’s comments  reported that it was a modified Toyota.

Once again I am forced two point out the tendency of drivers to behave as if they, and the people around them, are crash dummies.

Until such time that the laws are actually enforced we will continue to see death and destruction around us.
