A Motor-car Accident


It is the mad craze for speed that is responsible for many motor accidents. Only last year I saw what might have been a disastrous accident on the Muree Road. I was driving down from Abbot Abad; and as I was nearing Islamabad, I came upon the wreckage of two cars on the road. The smash had been caused by a car coming down, which swept round a sharp corner at forty miles an hour and crashed into a car coming up. Happily no one was killed; however several were badly injured, and the two cars were wrecked. To drive at such a speed down a twisting mountain road simply to court disaster.
