Working away this morning I was stirred by the dee dah of emergency vehicles on the road outside my house. Not unusual here being next to the airport and the police doing training runs up and down the road, alarms are a regular occurence. However as I stood at the back window talking on the phone there in the distance was a collection of blue lights on the Horton Grange Road. For the second time this week the back road was blocked due to an acccident.
I've lost count of the number of accidents on this road over the years but they seem to be getting more frequent. It's not like it should be surprise as the road bends all over the place, has poor visibility, poor surfacing and this morning was obviously icy.
Anyway some poor soul was carted away in a blood waggon and the upturned remains were in Dougies field (he'll be livid if they have to go in to recover it). I was impressed that despite being upturned the vehicles lights were still working. Looked like a sporty Peugot but I'm no expert especially when they're upside down and crumpled.
