  1. Did not have time to bother with the walkover. Now time’s up, and bound for final destination, six feet under.

  2. Where is this drivers humanity? The guy was obviously wrong for not using the over pass but to hit someone and not stop… do you sleep at night. Or is getting away with driving without a license more important

  3. Sorry for the deceased.. colourful clothing should be worn at nights so the driver can see the Colour to avoid another fatalities. Some drivers can’t see in the daytime and the night is worst..
