Yeah, 'allegedly' two adults and three children.

the situation was so traumatic that emergency crews would need counselling


You can guess it was bad when they had to identify the CAR from it's chassis number.

My thoughts are with the relatives of those concerned and with the members of the emergency services who had to deal with this situation and its aftermath!

It's never easy, and I hope they do get the pastoral care that they need. Unfortunately it doesn't always happen! I know that from personal experience.

Wonder how exactly this happened? And why was the Portuguese driver to blame?

Terribly sad. The likely cause is the foreign driver, short of sleep, fell asleep at the wheel.

Just seen that the police have charged a foreign type person with Death by Dangerous Driving.

What will he get ? A slap on the wrist and maybe a couple of months in the cooler. No doubt we will find out he was on his mobile phone or watching some Spanish bilge video in the cab whilst driving, or as Chris says half asleep due to working way over his hours AND stealing jobs from OUR haulage firms.

It's six murders in my book. Lock the bar****d in his cab. Lob in a BRITISH IMPERIAL gallon of unleaded, followed by a match and see how he likes it !!

Grrrr.. Fizz Fizz.
