Just what kind of Sick world are we living in ?
Prepare to be Enraged
They do seem to specialise in late news over there.
Iriondo was not wearing a helmet or reflective clothing when he was killed and was hit when he rode through a Give Way junction.
So he gets off because of this?
I realise that the story of the death was covered on here before but this is the first i've seen of the car driver suing the boys family for damage to his car
3 words sum it up for me...
what a cock.
Isn't there another story on BR saying that the case was dropped?
Edit: yes, there is
Just been practicing my (rusty ) Spanish and dug up one of the original articles in El Pais. If I understand the article correctly, it seems that this story caused an immense public outcry in Spain - more people commented on this story than any other, in the press and on the TV networks - mostly condemnation of the driver . I'm glad to see the commonsense and compassionate element in Spanish people.
Two words do it for me: Audi Driver.
It would be interesting to know how wearing a helmet or reflective clothing would have helped being hit at 100 miles an hour. The driver has certainly got some bare faced cheek
The driver has a problem in his head as well as with his driving!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can't say I am in the least bit surprised myself. Especially once you realise that it happened in Spain. We all know that they are all about bullfighting and donkey-torturing anyway.
Jesus. I just wouldn't have the brass neck to do that.
why focus on him not wearing reflective clothing and helmet and ignore him riding through a give way junction?
Let's hope karma wreaks some sort of terrible revenge on the man.
Bear in mind that Spain is the only European country to date with a helmet law for adults (albeit only partial in scope). Even if not enforced, this is obviously something insurance companies and lawyers will seize upon...
