These Fiestas have minds of their own.

Perhaps the standard of driving left something to be desired?

Hey-ho. Teenager, at-fault crash, perhaps the increased insurance premium will keep her off the road for a while, and the rest of us will be a little safer on our travels.

No he wont, and neither will I. It says in the piece that the driver lost control. So, it is a teenager at fault crash and, thankfully, her Insurance premium will go up. Not the lorry drivers or anybody not affected by the incident. Unless you know different?

Still haven't answered my question, now is your chance to put the record straight to stop all the guessing, like you suggested in the first place.

So why did the driver lose control, was it driver error or a fault with the car, maybe she swerved to avoid another incident (oncoming vehicle, bad road surface, pedestrian), how fast was the car going, was the driver impaired, was the truck 'parked in a layby' actually fully parked in the layby?
Don't know do you so don't jump to conclusions.

People do jump to conclusions far to quickly about things and this is a prime example. Ok they're teenagers, so what. I've been behind some adults who are far worse. What about the other end of the age range? Are people's responses not a little bit slower?? Could this not cause accidents as well? I know this young lady very well and she's a very level headed young lady who is very careful in whatever she does. I wonder how the people who made derogatory comments would feel if it was their child. These things happen, kids today have no hope of getting on in life if there are people out there making comments and forming opinions like the ones in previous comments.

I highly disagree with these comments made by some obnoxious pig! The teenagers were badly injured in this accident. So what they were teenagers ! There have been many accidents were elderly people or middle aged people have accidents yet you don't get on your high horse about them! I started driving when I was 18 I haven't had an accident thank god but Jesus Christ have some respect for the people involved in this ACCIDENT and their families. Think of it if the shoe was on the other foot !

That's fine. I know my wife very well, but she still had a serious accident with my daughter in the car. Both were seriously injured. Both are now OK. People will always comment and will always put forward a scenario, mostly wrong, but it does, sadly, stimulate other comments. What can not happen is people, whoever they are, telling others to keep quite and stop commenting. That can just not happen, and if you do take that line, you can shut everybody up with a comment about what actually happened. How do you lose control of a car and collide with a stationary lorry in a layby? There are numerous answers to that question and hence sidelines, perhaps, thoughtless comment. Finally, I didn't and still don't think I would have time for the DE blog after some major bad news, but that is me.
