Yes that is sad.

A local friend's wife had a 2 door, and on a roundabout a Tesco lorry turned over onto it, with her and two children inside - but, as reported in the paper, they were not seriously hurt - the strong rounded shape and thick steel saved them - but the car did not survive, alas.

Not wishing to detract from the above. Seems to be a jinx on the roads around that area. A friend of our family, Ted Reid, was among a number, including some Italian tourists, who died in a collision not too far away on the A96 Elgin to Inverness road last Thursday night.

Condolences to all from me too.
