I had an accident on the M1 on the way home from work. I probably shouldn’t say anything about it here, sub judice and all that. I wasn’t hurt, and two other people are being checked for whiplash. I’m not sure if my car will make it.
Had quite a long wait in the recovery truck because he was called to an additional accident on the way to taking me to a railway station. The second accident looked a lot like mine, only with much more expensive cars.
Whilst sitting in the truck listening to Radio 1 I heard the news:
- police were appealing for motorists who drove straight past the body of a badly injured woman on a road to speak them
- news was reported of a 6 hour wait for police to respond to a woman hiding in a kitchen cupboard because her husband was about to kill her; she was killed by her husband
- Ken Bigley’s captors released another video of him in a cage, bound hand and foot, and weeping
It put my accident in perspective a bit.
