I hear on the grapevine that the car ran the red light. I guess the car driver played lotto and lost. Of concern though, the truck’s trailer did not have a headboard and the load of roof trusses seems to have shifted. A little bit further and the driver of the truck would have been cactus. I suggest the truck driver buy a lotto ticket for the big draw because it is his lucky week.

Red light running? In Canberra? Surely not.
