Sad news

In my last post I talked about how the rain leads to an increase in traffic accidents. We heard a couple of days ago that a girl from Elliot & Abigail's school was killed when the bus she was travelling to school in was involved in a collision. She was in Year 5, so would have been nine or ten years old. Twelve other children on the same bus -- including her triplet brother and sister -- escaped with minor injuries. The story seems to be that she wasn't wearing her seatbelt and so was thrown from the bus. Although they were not close friends Abigail knew her, because she was on the swim team.
