TODAY'S fatal accident on the A14 at Coddenham is a grim reminder to drivers that there can be danger on the roads at any time of the day or night - when conditions are busy or quiet.

The full details of the accident will not be revealed until the inquest into the two deaths is carried out, but whatever was the reason for the accident the fact is that the families of the two victims will today be in mourning.

They will be facing the dreadful knock at the door by police officers facing the worst aspect of their job - telling people that loved ones they may only have been chatting to a few hours earlier will never return home.

They will then have to face the sadness of going to the funerals.

Our hearts go out to the victims and their families. For them 2007 has already turned out to be an appalling year.

Once the inquest has taken place and we all know what happened drivers may be able to take note and take their own safety measures.
