Re: Total Motorway Carnage

Excellent post - thanks.

I don't know where you got the images and story, but the version I know states that all six fatal victims were in the small Corsa and that the students in the van survived, including the driver.

Only three of the victims are identified, and they are aged from 27 to 30 years, which explains that they don't look like students.

The students are said to come from a "private school", so I guess that they are not much more than kids.

There is a small discrepancy in the article: It says that there were 11 surviving persons in the van - but only mentions 10 names. On the other hand it is pretty clear about the dead:

Quote:
He (the driver of the Corsa) was alive when he was removed from the vehicle, but died soon after. Five other people were in the vehicle also died.
And about the survivors:

Quote:
The 11 people who were in the van, color silver, were rescued by teams of Service Mobile Emergency Care (Samu)

Re: Total Motorway Carnage

This is one reason I hate riding in buses or any type of "group" vehicle. No seat-belts.....It might not have matter much either way since it appears to be a straight HEAD ON collision but you never know...At least they would have died prettier.

Thank you, this makes so much more sense. Looking at the picture of the van in it's state, and the pictures of the bodies, really do not make sense as to how those bodies can get THAT mangled, yet the van didn't sustain very much damage.

Sometimes these foreign news sources are a little janky. I've seen the same story (this one in particular) told three different ways on three different sites-all 'respectable' news outlets. Not sure what the issue is, but I usually just do a quick rough translation of the 'most reputable' site's story and post it up here. Usually the details are accurate, but sometimes the news will err and sometimes I will too. Sorry the first explanation didn't make much sense for you-it was the best I had to work with at the time.

And, believe it or not, getting the story straight is very important to me. I know many are here just to look at mangled bodies and carnage, but I personally am far more appreciative of an interesting or well told narrative to accompany the chaos.

Ban, you don't have to keep apologizing to people. It's not your fault that info isn't correct sometimes. Most of us realize that.

Your posts are always stellar, I love them! You really add a lot around here.

I totally agree, and my post wasn't done to critizise banedon or anybody else - just to fullfill our collective purpose of getting the best images with the best stories.

And banedon is right - there are several versions of the story out there, and they don't even agree on who and how many persons there were in the bus.

Last but not least: If I hadn't known that exactly banedon is a person who appreciate the story with the images, I don't think I would have bothered.

Thank you. I truly appreciate that. It isn't something I hear very often. Most folks just 'Thank' and run or say nothing at all.

Not that I do this for any sort of attention or appreciation. I just do it because I enjoy sharing the stories and photos with others who find this sort of thing compelling. But it IS a lot of work. Like...a ridiculous amount sometimes. So it does feel nice to be appreciated for the effort once in a while. I would keep posting with or without the positive feedback, but it is always warmly welcomed.
