  7. By George I think he got it says:

    Yes, the driver was arrested and will appear in court for his bad decision. However, if that hole had been left open and unattended anywhere else not only the company trenching but the company having it done would be liable and that fellow would have a very nice case against them. New car the whole nine.

      That’s 100% BS!

      Ample signage around as it drove past same ditch
      The difference here is he was allegedly drunk and went to the wrong side of the.cones!

      You don’t need to be a detective to wrap up this case!

    He was blinded by the light

  9. Gibby says:

    Shame the cones weren’t there by the open ditch when I drove past on Friday evening, It was an accident waiting To happen. Hope they are ok.

  10. Sally says:

    I literally done the same thing that Friday night on my bike but caught myself just before entering the hole. I knew this was going to happen to someone. Stop light & cones was set up very poorly.
