Yes, and anyone turning that corner at over 20 is asking for trouble - even in an Audi

I saw the wreckage when I came back from a night out. Totally mangled, windscreen and roof on floor, petrol everywhere and it appeared to have rammed into the side of the supermarket, unless that's where it had been moved.

Too many lunatics driving round the place now. Rayleigh is full of idiots at night time, especially Friday and Saturday. If they're not racing up and down with souped up engines, revving and screeching tyres, they're staggering around the street screeching like fishwives, swearing, or beating each other up.

It's like the Fred Carno's in summer.

It's a tragic accident that happened. I hope the man recovers. I wondered if the friend of his knows how he's doing. I didn't see it happen but saw the car minutes after it happened and the emergency services were amazing. People shouldn't judge. Its a miracle no one else was hurt. Whether the man was speeding or not its him and his family that are the ones suffering no one else so those who are judging should stop and have a thought for the man and his family.

People can judge on the evidence they see. It was a 30 limit. There was no other vehicle in the crash. The car was an Audi (seems to attract plums). Perhaps there is an outside chance that he was driving safely, but it's very unlikely. If people are wrong then so be it, but they are not wrong to express their opinion.
We frequently read remarks saying don't comment because you may upset relatives of the person, but this is ridiculous. If we took that advice public debate would be stifled. Nobody would comment on a topic in case they upset someone. If people do not want to be upset or hurt by comments they should not read forums where people voice opinions on the topic involving their friend or relative.
