  1. Sigh…. I am hoping he pulls through. I can only imagine the turmoil that his family and friends must be facing. I really hope he makes it through.

  2. Praying for a full recovery for the both of you. God still answers prayers and he will give your family the strenght to cope in this difficult situation.

  3. I’m So Sorry To Hear Of This Accident! My Prayers Are With The Young Gent’s Family!📖

  4. MANNER OF DRIVING

    The manner in which a motorist drives often determines four things (i) …Hospital; (ii)…Mortuary; (iii) …Grave; or (iv) …Court House.’

    There is absolutely nothing evil about these, Such reflect the harsh realities of life.

    Those who believe in sentimentality, often see things one way. Some concentrate only on injuries. Medical experts would take care of that.

    Professionally speaking, in traffic accidents investigations,’ such as what is reported at this news portal, while the injured shall be cared for, there is something equally fundamental.

    May be not to the ‘…naive or sentimentalists,’ but to traffic accidents investigators, this ‘…picture is worth a thousand words.’ Reasonable inferences may be drawn as to the ‘…Manner of Driving.’

    When he recovers, investigators would serve him a ‘…Notice of Intended Prosecution.’

    He most certainly would be told that he would be prosecuted for either (a) …Reckless; (b) …Dangerous; or (c) …Careless Driving; or (d) …For exceeding the speed limit applicable to the vehicle he was driving.’

    Even for this non-fatal accident (for now), all motorists shall, at least take heed, not only in avoiding serious accidents and injuries, but also of that which constantly dangles over the heads of motorists off the roadway.

    It is even more grave, particularly as the recent amendments to the traffic law took effect.

  5. A basic ability to drive is certainly necessary for a person to drive and avoid crashes. This ability is acquired through knowledge, skill development, and experience. All new drivers must acquire knowledge of the rules of the road and how a vehicle works. This knowledge is often gained in a driver education or driver training class, with some behind‐the‐wheel learning. Driver education is currently under scrutiny as the need for a more science based approach is acknowledged. In addition to the necessary knowledge, basic skills must also be acquired. Young novice drivers must learn skills in car handling and essential maneuvers (starts, stops, turns, lane keeping, speed control, etc). Subsequently, competence in those skills must be achieved through practice, some in driver education, but mostly in supervised practice with an experienced driver (typically a parent for teens) over an extended period of time. Even when the basic knowledge and skills have been acquired, much experience is necessary for driving ability to become satisfactory. Crashes and offenses go down over time as novice drivers gain experience in the complex psychomotor task of driving.
    Driving is simply not getting behind a steering wheel alone. I requires greater skill which can be acquired overtime. Sadly, when you look and examine thee ages of many of the folks involved in serious accidents on our roads, it begs the question, how many of them can really drive….even though they have a drivers license. The authorities need to get tougher with these “new and inexperience drivers” even as they try to save them from themselves.

    • Learning from the expert Mr Pompey. Your pieces have thought me a lot. Great job always!
