I’ve had two emails from relatives of the two passengers who died in the crash. They are extremely pissed off at the speculation that driver error was the cause of the crash. I don’t want to add to anyone’s pain and I’ve agreed to remove the post until the Garda investigation is complete. I’ve said if it transpires that speed or alcohol was a factor then I will put the post back up. If there was some non-driver related problem, like brake failure – then they have my apologies.
I’ve got a huge amount to say about this is in itself, never mind the crash, but I don’t want to upset more relatives, who to be fair, are traumatised. However, when the garda investigation is complete I’ll feel free to say more – about the crash – and censorship.
Update: Ok guys, the comments were getting out of hand there. Unfortunately there is no blogger manual for how to deal with situations like this. I am all for free speech but there is an extremely upset relative getting even more upset and we’re going to have to cool it. In the meantime I have deleted some of the more inflammotory comments and I have disabled any further commenting. We’re going to have to remember that there are grieving relatives.
