      That has nothing to do with reckless drivers that not been proven anyway,we jus have to leave that as an accident.because some of the pedestrian doesn’t indicate to the driver that they want to cross they just do

    Sad but true stop making yourself a jackass and speak some sense. You are taking every thing as a joke.

    Sad-but-true. Tell me something, are you jealous of our PM.
    I suspect you may have had an agenda for him which he did not comply to. Poor jab for you. Worthless brat. Find a life for yourself, that will be better for you and your family.
    YOU NEED PRAYERS ROUND THE CLOCK!

    This is sad to know and I pray for both families. Evening if we are driving with due care and attention it is not standard to have crossing on bridges plus there is a crossing at the traffic light for us to use. The bridge has foot paths and as such we all should pay attention and know the lighting is poor on the bridge
