    Wishing a complete recovery to the child involved, there are, frankly, far too many collisions like this. Why people are not far angrier about it, is a mystery.

    We should also question how this is reported, why not say that there was a collision between the driver of an orange mini and a pedestrian, rather than give the impression that the car was driverless.

    It perhaps goes some way to explain why we’ve become so desensitized to these kind of events and no more progressive action is taken to prevent them.
