The family of an “amazing” young woman who was killed at an illegal car cruise say that “lessons need to be learned to stop this happening to others.”
I mean, who could ever predict that standing around on a street corner at night while idiots perform dangerous and illegal stunts in their cars could ever go wrong!
Sophie’s family said: “This past year has been the worst of our lives, having to cope with losing Sophie and then having to relive it all again at the inquest.
“Dangerous driving destroys lives. All this could have been prevented, and while we have now been given some answers on what happened at Trafford Park, it will never bring Sophie back to us.
“We really hope that lessons can be learned from our tragedy as we don’t want any other family to go through what we have.”
Who is it you think should learn these lessons, I wonder? Is it the idiot drivers? Is it the idiot spectators, like your daughter?
Or is it someone with deep pockets (that belong to someone else)?
The families of three of those injured, Sophie’s boyfriend Jordan Chidgey, from Radcliffe, Dan Robinson and Colin Burton, both from Eccles, instructed specialist lawyers at Irwin Mitchell to support them through the legal process.
The drivers themselves are unlikely to be worth pursuing. So the sharks can only be following the scent of blood from their insurance companies (thus putting up the price for all responsible drivers) or the state for failing to crack down on them (thus ensuring all taxpayers are on the hook).
Why the hell is it that when an idiot is killed doing something idiotic, someone wants to put their hands in my pocket to pay for it?
