  • Thoughts are with the lady and her family, hoping she gets better. To agree the guy in the white shirt at the roundabout did a great job of easing the traffic.

    Blocks Away

  • Just to note that there were a number of people at the scene who did as much as possible to aid, long before the emergency services arrived. I was a number of cars further down St Peters Road and did not witness anything other than a number of sensible people who got out of their cars and blocked the road to stop further congestion, explained to people why the road was blocked and 'held the fort' until the emergency services arrived. Well done to them, especially the guy in the white car at the McDonalds roundabout who kept traffic moving by blocking the road with his car to stop rubber neckers.... I am sure this all helped the professionals reach the scene and deal with the unfortunate victim[s]... Credit where it's due !
