Not buying accident excuse
Last Friday (July 27, 2018) was not April’s Fool Day. A car crashed through the retaining wall at Bailey’s Bay and landed at the water’s edge.
The driver explained: “The sun went into my eyes and that was it.”
That palpable excuse is so laughable that even the blind can see through it.
Since when does the sun’s rays, close to midday, strike into the eyes, unless one is looking skyward at a high angle at that time?
At the time of the mishap, the sun was in the south.
That section of the road, on which he was driving, is aligned east to west.
Perhaps, next time it will be moonlight, not smoke, that gets into his eyes.
