Following on from this morning’s fatal accident on the Kings Highway near Kowen, comes the news that the highway has now been re-opened.
NSW emergency vehicles also went out there. I know there was four NSW police vehicles, two NSW ambulances and possibly two NSW fire trucks (as well as two ACT ones)
Photo in today’s Crimes shows the remains of the dead woman’s car. The article says the other car veered onto her side of the road. 🙁
I just hope the emergency services got their as quick as they could. I passed a few fire trucks from Woden on their way up the hill out of QBN this morning. Id hate to think precious minutes were wasted waiting for the ACT emergency services to get there when the NSW emergency services are closer.
Tensions between cyclists and motorists have flared after another tragic death. Should these be regarded as traffic incidents, or do we need stiffer penalties for deaths and serious injuries?
