5 dies in horrific mass-accident

A young boy and his father and three health-workers from the local hospital here in Narvik died in a road accident Friday between Tromsø and Narvik involving  two buses and car. 6 more are in intensive care at the University Hospital in Tromsø. People die all the time along the roads in Norway. Politicians are more interested in building “systems” to secure their power-base. The minister of Transportation and Communication, Magnhild Meltveit Kleppa, is such an incompetent politician.

This part of the accident-proned road between Narvik and Tromsø should have been secured with spacers between the lanes – but quite incompetently nothing is being done other than hiring more government officials and spending taxpayers money on more laws and regulations.

The Accident Investigators are inspecting the scene and the cars involved. Friday’s Accident seems to have been worse than necessary because several of the passengers failing to use seat belt in the mini-bus involved. Seat belts actually improves your risk of survival by 200% It also decreases your risk of serious injuries just as much. I for one – would not have been here to write these lines to you – if it weren’t for seat belts! Use Seat Belts – Someone Loves You!

Stupid, ignorant, nepotistic politicians and seat belts aside – with this we let our warmest sympathies and heartfelt condolences go out to those who have lost their dear, to those who are struggling for life in the hospital while at the same time coping with the loss of their dear son and father/husband and to the hospital staff who found three of their employees dead in this horrific accident just minutes after meeting them at the hospital.Condolences - Lavangsdalen - 07-01-2011
