Last Thursday morning a man called Roger, aged 52, had a heart attack in a residential street. He was driving a truck at the time, and as he lost control the truck ploughed into two parked cars and a camper van, demolished a wall and ruptured a gas main. The camper van was shoved into a bus shelter, which had only been vacated a few minutes earlier. Roger's heart attack was fatal. Fortunately, Roger's truck swerved to the right, across the opposite lane of traffic. Had he swerved left he would have ploughed into the bus stop where my youngest daughter was standing on her own, momentarily distracted by getting something out of her bag. When his truck hit the first parked car directly opposite her bus stop my daughter got one of the biggest shocks of her young life, and it left her very shaky for some time afterwards. We will never know if Roger was trying to avoid hitting my daughter, the only person visible in the street, or if things were too far gone by then and it was pure luck. Either way, we are most thankful that things happened the way they did. By some odd coincidence Roger was the same age as me, and it's no age to go like that. It makes you think doesn't it? I wondered if anyone else has had (or heard of) any near miss moments like that?
