A tragic accident, a bereaved family, and a questionable case of diplomatic immunity.
How many of us have, at least once, moved out from a minor road on to another at 90°, traffic free, only to realise chillingly that we are driving in the wrong lane, facing on-coming traffic and a possible head-on collision?
There have been (mercifully very few) times, on unfamiliar rural roads, that I have made this potentially fatal error, broken out in a cold sweat, and hastily changed lanes.
I conjecture that this may have been the case in the recent incident. I imagine the American driver is in a state of nervous shock herself and horrified at what she did.
Should she be made to return to UK to face the judicial music, and the public outcry? I have serious doubts about it, at least in the near future. Maybe ‘in good time’, and privately?
