Man killed in early morning accident on Morshead Drive

By caf - 20 July 2007 12

ABC online reports on a fatal single vehicle car accident at 3am this morning, on Morshead Drive. This comes only days after the AFP asked Canberra drivers to exercise greater caution in the icy conditions that are a natural consequence of the sub-zero nights we’re experiencing at the moment.

What’s Your opinion?

I’d hazard a guess that either alcohol or driver fatigue have more to do with this accident rather than icy road conditions.

Speed will be blamed regardless of what caused the accident.

Poor old speed, nobody ever comes to his defence.

I really can not think of any place along that road that a person who is of sound mind could impact a tree. Fog or no fog.

My guess, drug and/or alcohol.

Speed does not kill.

Scientists have proven its stopping really quickly that does the damage.

I knew this guy. Why must you people offer brainless conjecture over his tragic death? Mr Asp do you know the roundabout up Morshead that he came off? Are you telling me that that is a safe road at 3am? To label the poor guy drunk, or drugged, or not of sound mind is disgraceful. I hope all you people poking fun die fiery deaths just like my friend did, and soon.

Well alcohol, driver fatigue and/or excessive speed are quite often factors in single vehicle accidents – especially ones that occur late at night or very early in the morning.

Have a nice life, mate. 😉

Well, judging by the bunches of flowers and things stuck to a tree there this morning, it was coming off the tiny little roundabout that takes people down to the lake (nursing home and restaurant) or up into the Russell carparks. The tree was a fair way from the road, too.

mike_j – sorry to hear about your friend but can you explain how hundreds of other drivers manage to negotiate the same roundabout without having an accident?
