Given the outpouring of grief on another thread about a cyclist’s death, doesn’t anyone care about this fatal accident too?

It’s another regional country road and it occurred at night. Both drivers were a distance from their homes too. There have been a lot of fatal accidents on this stretch.

Very sad.
