A woman and her child, which she was pushing in a buggy, have been injured after being knocked down while crossing a zebra crossing on the main road in Guaza. Police and Emergency Services say that the accident happened around 1pm and that the woman suffered shoulder injuries and moderate cuts and bruises. Thankfully she is otherwise unharmed, and mercifully, the child had nothing worse than light cuts and bruises. Both were transferred to Hospitén Sur where they are said not to be in any danger.
I can imagine that after two accidents this morning on Arona’s roads, and the tragedy in Adeje recently where Carter Carson was the victim of a hit and run driver, there will be calls for something to be done. Quite what can actually be done is another matter, of course, but surely now “statistical bunching” is not a sufficient answer where lives are at stake, and where we might consider ourselves fortunate that no more than one has died.
