The driver of the blue light vehicle which knocked Thomas Ferreira off his motorcycle last year will be criminally prosecuted. The case will be of particular interest to Ferreira’s family, who nursed Thomas through a coma of several weeks and a slow and costly rehabilitation following the accident.
Do you remember the accident at the end of last year, in which teenager Thomas Ferreira was knocked off his motorcycle by a blue-light vehicle? The car allegedly jumped a red traffic light in its terrible rush to get its VIP occupant somewhere. In an intriguing comment this week, the politician who was being transported in the car involved has stated unequivocally that the accident should not be politicised.
