News: Leicester Road Traffic Accident

Road Traffic AccidentThe road I live on has just been closed (well, the end which I live on has been). Why? There’s been a RTA (Road Traffic Accident)! From what I can work out, a silver car was coming down the hill at a far whack (which, unfortunately, is not unusual), collided with a parked red car, rebounded and hit another parked car, skidded, hit another parked car, hit a few others including a van (I’m hearing 8 vehicles were involved). The silver car seems to be a total write off (the front is less than 1/4 of the size it is meant to be) and there is no signs of the driver: either he’s standing with the considerable crowd near it (I’m still at home) or he’s done – what many people are saying – a runner away from the scene.

At the moment, there are two police cars at the Belgave Boulevard end of the road, with 1 ambulance and 2 fire engines and there’s a police car a bit further up blocking traffic.

Add: As I was typing that, another police car has arrived on the scene and theres some sounds coming from the vicinity of the fire engine closest to the crashing car. At first I thought they were just “making safe” the situation by cooling the engine, but I’m getting suspicions that somebody may be trapped…

More as I get it.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
