" 1 killed, 2 sent to hospital - Region hit by three seperate rush-hour accidents"

-  article written by Stephanie Ip; The Province Newspaper Sept 11/13.

It's kind of like the witching hour for car accidents.

The roads of B.C's LowerMainland are jammed with vehicles.

Many of  the people behind the wheel of these cars have spent the day at work. And they want to get home ASAP.

Why don't we have a look at Sept 10/13.

" In Burnaby, a cyclist was was killed after he was struck by a semi-truck at around 5:30 p.m. near Sprott Street and Norland Ave, just behind the Burnaby 8 Rinks."

" In Vancouver, a 13 year old boy remains in hospital in stable condition and is recovering after he was hit by a car and thrown into a bus... Sgt. Randy Rincham said the accident took place at around 4 p.m. on Tuesdays at the intersection of Cambie Street and West 20th Ave. as the boy was crossing Cambie at a pedestrian controlled intersection."

" In Port Coquitlam, police are hunting for the driver of a Ford F150 that fled from a pedestrian-involved collision Tuesday afternoon near Mary Hill and Pitt River roads.... RCMP say the truck hit a 15 year old girl, who was then rushed to the hospital with 'life-threatening injuries."

Alright. What's the common theme here?

Timing - that's what. All these accidents occured during the afternnon rush hour.

What's the moral of the story? The time of day an accident occurs at matters.

And it may be a factor to be considered when it comes to arguing who was responsible for an accident.
