I was deeply upset over the weekend to read the story of mother and animal lover Meesha-chan Grubisic who was struck and killed in a road traffic accident outside of her home while trying to save her dog Sailor.

It’s a tragic story, and I know I speak for everyone here at Mccomb Witten when I say that our thoughts and prayers go out to Mrs Grubisic’s nearest and dearest in this most difficult of times.

From what I’ve read Mrs Grubisic was a wonderful woman and I’m struggling this morning to get my head around how unfair life can sometimes seem when bad things like this happen to good people. As a dog owner myself I know how important our furry friends are to our lives. Our pet pooch Hugo is a beloved member of the Witten clan, one that I’d do just about anything to protect.

According to the reports I’ve read the accident happened on Goldstream Avenue, a residential area that empties off of the Trans-Canada highway. The police are supposedly looking at a number of factors that might have caused the accident and I hope they manage to piece together what happened to give Mrs Grubisic’s family the peace of mind they deserve.

For the rest of us however this tragic tale is a timely reminder that we should always expect the unexpected on our roads and highways. As drivers we need to be aware that anything can happen when we step behind the wheel of our vehicles, especially in residential areas where all manner of unpredictable hazards lurk by the side of the road.

So please, please, PLEASE drive safely out there. You never know what is going to be around the next corner.
