    All of you are ignorant…you don’t know the age of the person and you are supposing that you know what happened.
    Thankfully this wasn’t as serious as it could have been and there were no casualties. On a whole I believe that his family would appreciate a little caution with words; as I am sure none of you would like to have presumptions made about situations where none of them were true.
    Words are powerful things and we should be careful what falls out of our face…a little tact would be good.

    When oh when is the OBA going to do something about these marauding walls which are colliding with unprepared vehicles?

  8. XD says:

    the guy was actually pretty old from the looks of it (was there) and he didnt seem to be intoxicated or anything like that.

  9. my view says:

    I hope the driver will make a full recovery .

    I’m sorry for the accident and hope that the person driving was not hurt. There must have been a problem since the car was on the wrong side of the road. Better to have been stopped by the wall than to have gone down the hill into town. This accident could have been much worse.

  11. Hope driver is safe.we all make mistakes.

    If he is an older gentleman maybe it is time to talk about getting seniors off the road.
    To ensure the safety of others on the road ( and our walls) we should start mandatory testing on a yearly basis for people over 65 years old.

    You people need to take a break , he was not DRUNK, the gentleman is 85yrs old and being that age anything can happen … he is also the grandfather to one of our MP’s, who is by his side right now … so on this note take a damn break from being negative …

  14. Kindley says:

    65 is not old…..even 85 is not old for some people.

  15. Outta m' way! ;o} says:

    Yep, gotta be careful of those darn jumpin’ walls — they strike when you least expect it!
