Woke up this morning to the sound of a helicopter hovering nearby.
It quickly became apparent something serious was going on: just before 2am a car travelling at high speed along Centre Road (the main road nearest to me) had smashed into several shops, killing the driver.
It was Isaac that pointed out that the bakeries in the area (at least three, including Glicks) might well have had bakers working at the time. Luckily in Glicks at least the kitchens are well back from the street.
Given the speed — 160 km/h in a 60 zone, and I’m betting he wasn’t overly-cautious about stopping for red lights — I think we can be thankful that the driver didn’t take anybody else with him.
