Hit and run

It was just 2 minutes.

I was driving on the middle land as usual on the highway when I noticed on the right, a taxi was trying to cut into my lane when I noticed his vehicle front was almost gonna cut into mine if I had not slowly break to allow my car not to have a direct impact to it...

So, the taxi was able to swing from the right lane towards the middle lane, and it subsequently swing towards the far left...

I thought to myself... this was some reckless driving, without signal and was able forceful in driving... what would the passengers in the taxi think ?

Then, the weird thing start to happen... the taxi sped and move towards the middle lane again from the left... this time, the taxi was two car in front of mine and in front of mine was a big van..

My partner quickly warned me from following too closely from the van...

Then the incident happen... the taxi suddenly cuts towards the left again... but this time, it hits a motorcycle... the person was off balance and hit the floor, what was worse, was that I noticed the helmet was off from his head when the impact happen... as that all happen, the taxi didn't stop at all, but fled off on the flyover bridge on the left.

Cars were just moving too fast on the highway ... and then my car was off the scene and I didn't get the chance to see what happen subsequently...if only I had the seen the full number plate of the taxi...

That, happen in just 2 minutes.


It was then I had a brief flashback of an accident I had few years ago...

Though it is always crucial to understand if anyone was hurt in anyway in any accident... sometimes, it's not just if people are unharmed physically... but sometimes, the livelihood of the person may also be impacted too...

A life lost due to the mistakes of another is hard to accept....
