‘Driver not a victim’
LET’S be fair about how we word briefs about accidents.
Regarding “Man suffers broken leg in collision with teen”, ( Gazette, March 17).
Does the story not point out that the 65-year-old “victim” pulled out in front of the young woman’s car that was travelling the Mossman-Daintree Road?
The “victim” hit by the teen, as you put it, was the one in the wrong.
Now that poor young woman will probably suffer anxiety about driving and you put it for everyone to read as though she were to blame.
“A car ran into the side of his”.... should say, “The man failed to give way to the young woman”.
