REAL LIFE STORIES - James' Story

James' Story

James was driving along a dual carriageway on his way to visit his mother, the weather was poor and the traffic was heavy for the time of day. As he came over the brow of a hill the traffic in front of him had begun to slow down and James didn’t react in time, losing control of his vehicle. James’ car collided with a 4x4 in the outside lane causing the 4x4 to be flipped over several times. The speed of the impact and the fact that James’ wasn’t wearing his seatbelt meant he received injuries that probably killed him instantly. During the course of the investigation it was established that James’ vehicle was travelling at nearly 90 mph when the crash happened. James was 23 years old and had a bright future ahead of him. He’ll never complete that trip to visit his mother…
