  1. My hearts go out to the family and friends due to this awful accident.
    Words are not enough I know for the pain you are all going through.

    • I was born and brought up 100m from the accident. My parents are still there.
      All my 54 years that road has seen accident after accident. Speeding up and down and dangers pulling on to the road with parked cars, especially in low sun.
      When will a speed camera be put in?
