    same story again and again. please, take a breath, slow down, just a little…. you don’t have to crawl along, just give yourself a break and enjoy the ride a bit. i’m trying that myself, and i find i’m less stressed overall.

      Real funny you fool. Suppose that had happened as kids were leaving following their afternoon lessons??

      • Sky Pilot says:

        they get a front row seat about the effects of SPEEDING!

      • Trish Alexander says:

        Yes I was worried about that too as the junior programme is very busy on Saturday afternoons!

      • islandguy says:

        Well fool, the fool driving wouldve suffered more consequences! Wether it was children leaving,or someone going across the pedestrian do the think the van driver was worried about that.
        Love you!

          Not sure what you are trying to say Islandtwit. English clearly was not your best subject.

  8. Truth is killin' me... says:

    Thank you Lord that no children were hurt. If there was no fault found with the truck and no medical condition found with the driver then the driver needs a good talking to and charges laid on him by the Police. This is totally unacceptable and we as a communtiy should not accept this as the norm.

  9. Oh my! says:

    Middle Road, Devonshire is showing the evidence of our brutal driving habits – the number of walls knocked down in a 1-2 mile stretch is shameful!

  10. SMH! says:

    LOL!

  11. Observer says:

    It seems that these accidents always happen at 35kph, because when Police ask how fast were you going, the response is always “about 35k’s” maybe the speed limit should be higher to stop these 35k’s accidents. Just saying…………………..
