    Default A bit strange accident

    It would be interesting to know the end result of this accident. Two cars hit 5 people and they are dead. Those 5 tried to rob a truck. I know what should happen but what will happen might be different.

    I didnít think that the occupants of the Toyota who drove into the back of the truck were related to the thieves? Seems like the truck pulled out to get away, causing it to be rear-ended

    The article is not clear. Badly worded. I read that the robbers were in the Toyota. There is no mention of cops arresting or looking for somebody. It says "No arrests made." Maybe I read wrong. What ever happened a bit strange accident.

    Maybe local paper has better details but I do not know any papers on that area.

    I do not think so. Those stealing horses were hanged. What is the modern day horse?

    But yes. Too much shooting. But I have a feeling that the new situation is resulting better police intelligence and arrests. I said for a long time: "Any criminal case on the front page of the paper is solved very quickly." Why it was like that was because the cops had exceptionally good intelligence. A robber farted and cops knew about it. Robbers were in a shebeen or similar and they were talking. Could not keep their mouth shut.

    Few more police generals must go to court/jail and we will have much more efficient police. There are many good people but they follow their bosses. Frot boss = frot constable.

    Immensely tragic. Truck broke down, pulls off and gets approached by villens, takes off into traffic, gets rear ended, drives off from the accident and continue to police station. The car that rear ended the truck got rear ended by two more cars. The five people dead are from the various cars. Reading lessons?

    Really bad news if those dead were not the robbers.

    What to learn? You must be able to stop on the stretch of the road you see when also considering the reaction time.

    As far as I understood the 5 dead were not the robbers. They rear ended the truck and while they were climbing out of the wreck they got rear ended by two other cars which killed them including a 7 month old baby. The police are looking for the robbers.
