In some ways, I kind of wish it had been a vaccine delivery truck.

"PC Edge said the driver had very few options and he would have taken the same course of action."

Well, that's farked up.

Are they not required to have backup alarms?

It's like getting struck by a truck, when all you need is a Covid vaccine.

I've been afraid of this for the last 12 months just driving 25 mph to the nearby grocery store for my weekly pickup.

"PC Leanne Steedman said CCTV footage suggested Ms Lewis had been 'in a world of her own'"

In that case the lorry driver should at least be ticketed for trespassing, he shouldn't have been there without an invitation.

Gotta watch out for those larger motorized rollinghams.

These idiots wearing their mask while driving alone inside their Prius are all pledging their loyalty to Joe Biden and the Democratic party...and the mask is the ultimate symbol to Party loyalty.

She had been trying to disentangle her mask when the collision occurred, an inquest heard.


See! Masks kill people!

/please don't take this seriously.
//that I even have to say "don't take this seriously" is a little sad.
///third slashie is never sad.

Tag is appropriate if she was ironed flat.

Probably the magnet in her vaccine that pulled her towards the truck.

Clearly, Bill Gates was operating it remotely by honing the GPS onto her embedded vaccine microchip!

What would Darth Vader do?

And in other news: There are enough people who self quarantined to all but guarantee that some will die quickly after coming out.

I don't want to start
Any blasphemous rumors
But I think that God's
Got a sick sense of humor
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing

Prius Prime, motherfarker. You qualify for an HOV sticker with plug-in hybrids. It's like you're not even committed to this.

Was she out on a date to see a Clark Gable movie?

For those that may not know, a Lorry is a truck and an MOT is like a smog check, well, and other checks I guess. 

Did the guy have no backup camera or backup alarm?

Worst Monty Python sketch ever.

I do it at 6:15 to 6:30am, if you're stuck behind me, it's because I'm stuck behind one of their 15mph delivery trucks.

Most trucks don't have backup cameras, the alarm probably wouldn't make a difference.  Seems like she wasn't very aware of her surroundings.
Trucks back very slowly. Driver wasn't cited.

article: 'CCTV footage suggested Ms Lewis had been 'in a world of her own''

Translation: Wasn't paying any heed at all whilst walking in a road with vehicles.

Inexplicably, her date could have pushed her out of the way and saved her, but chose not to. He also vanished soon after, and all attempts to locate him or determine his identity, have failed.

Oh yeah, I see people driving alone wearing masks--oh wait--not. BTW, your little tin god LOST.
