    How the hell does that happen. I know that road. Its two lanes each direction split with an island.

      Then it must be reckless at its best

      This was not a head on collision. I'm the mother of the 2 kids and I was also in the corsa and my fiance was the male that died. And the kids are 2 and 4 not 7 years old

    Can probably relate this to seat belt and alcohol AGAIN!

      Or maybe, driving on the wrong side of the road.

    Some people get into a car and drive do a destination, while most just get into the car and go, these are the ones who are dangerous.

    You are right. I don't understand why someone would just get on to the right simply because they can yet they don't have any clear destination they are heading to
