LOL I may be having a 'no attention span moment' but I am unable to see what part of this report says it was a woman driver. Or maybe I just don't get it ?

Whoever was driving, this is a very weird thing to happen. I wonder if we will ever be told how and why?
Seems lucky to me that there weren't far worse consequences.

If the Greens had their way and abolished cars this wouldn't have happened. We need more Green policies being enforced.

Lower Insurance for Women.

And if the Statistics for driving accidents supported male drivers, then no doubt they would have been released. But they haven't, weird that !!!!!!!!

It's not that weird, especially in this heat. Chances are whoever was driving passed out
