Usual seasonal carnage

Postby hillybilly » Fri Jan 02, 2009 5:32 pm

Did a round trip to Sedella this morning and saw:

an overturned vehicle beside the southbound A92 between Antequera and Malaga;
a 3 car pile up a bit further on, Guardia in attendance;
a bad multiple vehicle crash on the A335 north of Velez Malaga, rescue services in attendance;
an overturned vehicle beside the A356 nr Colmenar.

Not bad for one morning's driving!

Driving conditions were pretty foul in places (rain and thick cloud) so I guess it was the usual scenario of drivers not adjusting their speed/distance...

I hate driving in Spain because the Spanish just never seem to look ahead and cannot
concieve that anything can go wrong!
I saw in the paper that 40 percent of accidents are head on colisions and I can't say I am suprised. How often does one see a driver ovetaking on a blind bend or the brow of a hill, presumably not able to imagine the possibility of a car coming the other way!
It gives me the willies :roll:
Life is 'ard den you die!
