Head-on

Posted in Videos by 200

It’s amazing what fate has in store when it’s your time to go.

We have a dual carriageway in our area which has a section of about 2 miles with just open fields along it.  In the middle of nowhere there is a solitary oak tree which has been there at least 3 hundred years. The trunk of the tree is littered with scars of cars which have managed to miss the two miles either side of it of wilderness.

    Perhaps they were dazzled by the fog lights on the car in front of the bus?

    There was a tree in the Sahara that had stood for a couple of hundred years. It was the most remote tree on Earth, being 200 or so miles from its nearest neighbour.

    In the 1970s, it was flattened by a motor vehicle driven by – who else? – a Frenchman.

    Has anyone, who visits this site, driven in Saudi Arabia?

    Hitting a tree in the middle of nowhere, doesn’t even qualify!

    There was a famous landmark on the British Army Training Area in Suffield Canada called “Lone Tree”. It will come as no surprise that a young cavalry lieutenant ran it over in his Challenger 2 – now there is no lone tree.

    Bill, I was amazed at first how far they could get their accidents from the road. Until I saw it happen.
