I was out with my son near St Andrews today when we came across a bit of a traffic jam. When filtered to the front and we got to the source of the holdup we saw it was an accident involving a motorcycle. It seems a car had rear ended a bike when the rider had slowed to allow the car in front of her to turn left. The young girl in the car immediately behind the bike failed to stop in time and sent the rider flying.
Fortunately no one was seriously hurt and just as we stopped the ambulance arrived and the injured girl was taken inside. But rather oddly one of the first things asked was if I was the riders husband. No says I and why? Well it seemed they were riding together and despite the accident happening long enough ago for the ambulance to arrive he still hadn't showed up.
Even when we left about five mins later he still hadn't appeared.
So as the subject says make sure you keep and eye on those behind you. This time she was lucky but she could so easily have been lying out of sight and that could have been a much different story.
