accidentIt was a dark and rainy morning. A 17 year old boy rode his scooter to school on a dark country road.

On that same dark and rainy morning there was a female runner. She wore black clothes, without reflective elements. In her ears were a pair of headphones. Because the road was soggy, she ran in the middle of the road.

Multiple fractures and a concussion

Now the female runner is in hospital with multiple fractures and a concussion. The young boy is no doubt traumatized for life too.

I feel for both of them.

But I can’t help but think: ‘Why was the runner wearing black? Without any relective elements. And why was she wearing headphones in the dark, in these circumstances?’

How do you feel about this accident? Could it have been prevented?
