The drunk driver....a true story


Siobhan(her real name) went to a party...she remembered what her mother said...."never drink and drive"...so all night long ...she drank 7-up and occassionally looked out at her "new" car...a 4 yr old Ford Fiesta...not new in the real sense but new to her...as all first cars are.....even had a quality tape player...a present from her boyfriend...and a joke furry dice....a gift from her colleagues in the Bank....

So Siobhan had a great night..I know this for a fact...she told me......relishing the fact she'd have a clear head in the morning...ha...lovely stuff

Time to say goodbye...seeya's all around...hugs ...kisses...farewells...byeeeeeeeee.....see you next week

She got into her car.......still the lingering smell of "new car"...you know it yourself...nice isnt it...??......she pulled away...out onto the road....and in the right way.....until the drunk driver hit her....pummelling the car to pieces

I heard the policeman say....the other driver is drunk..........I cursed to myself...b*stard.....not that it would help...and looking at Siobhan I knew she was going to pay the ultimate tarriff...with her life

Cutting her out of the car.....pleading with the metal to give way......that maybe we could help her live another day....doctor on scene whispers theres a chace she could die.....no doctor....thats a filthy f*cking lie

She screamed in pain......goes through you like a knife....the screams to indicate the end of a life.....I tell her just to be brave.......but can see the ever looming grave.....

Her breath grew shorter..........the car now cut open...no joy.....limbs crushed beyond repair....I scream out in despair.....she smiles weakly to me.......sight passing out of eyes....I love you Mam she whispers......as her head moves slightly to one side.....

She didnt drink and drive....so when she said goodbye........why was it it was her who had to die

This is a true story......I thought of Siobhan today as I do a lot......she was the first R.T.A that I attended to as a fireman...she was also my cousin and friend...It was her anniversary today

Out of sight .....but never out of mind

Rest easily and peacefully

NEVER DRINK AND DRIVE

Well I have to say its a seriously sad story and I seen one like this on tv a while back, Im totally against drink driving Ive never done it and ive seen first hand the damage it causes...these people who drive whilst under the influence I dont give a 2nd thought to...its a difficult topic, but one I could go on and on about but will leave you with this..
Im sorry to hear bout yer cousin and am hoping she is at peace, its a waste of a life through no fault of her own...

I thinks every person before getting into a car for the first time should attend an RTA, only by seeing it firsthand can you take in the sheer waste of a life, my 4 kids were unfortunate at an early age to witness one, the driver wasn't drunk just came off the A23 sliproad to Horsham the wrong way I now have 4 sensible drivers but, it's the other idiot's we have to worry about. Firefighters, take my hat off to you all x
