An accident

 

I usually go for a stroll round the neighborhood after dinner. And so, as was my custom, I went for a stroll after dinner that evening. When I reached the main road, I saw a group of uniformed police officers standing in a group. A side of the two-lane road was cordoned off and traffic was allowed to move on the left lane only.

I walked nearer to the scene and saw that three cars had been involved in a terrible collision. There were two seriously wounded men lying on the floor. A few people covered with blood and bruises were sitting by the side of the road. I could se that the lone driver of the middle car still trapped in the driver's seat. The front of the car was crushed inward like a tin can and the driver could not be extricated.

In a matter of minutes, I heard the siren of the ambulance. The ambulance halted near the scene and the paramedics attended to the injured people. The two men lying on the floor were pronounced dead and were covered with black plastic sheets.

A few minutes later, the fire engine arrived. the fire fighters used their tools to free the trapped driver. I could see that the man's body was badly mangled and looked as if twisted out of shape. His whole body was covered with blood and his face was a mass of unrecognizable flesh. I could see the white bones of his arms jutting out from beneath the flesh where there were deep cuts. He was still alive.

Two lives lost, one in serious jeopardy, and a few others needing serious medical attention. I felt sick after what I had seen and quickly walked back home. I had lost the mood for a leisurely stroll.
