At the time i made a statement to the police. I was driving along Hyde lane that awful night, it normally takes me 10 mins to get home that night it took me 35 mins. I have always said i could drive that road blind folded, and that night i did because the fog was so thick. My heart goes out to the families of the people who lost their lives, but i dont think Mr Counsell is to blame. i think it was a tragedy that was caused by the fog.. The following year there was a fire work display at Taunton Race course and that is just as close to the motorway as the rugby ground.
Score: 4
