This is a sad page. Someone asked how many people had been killed on Eversholt’s roads, and that led to a search for news reports on local accidents. That turned up several events that are worth noting, but they are all tragedies, where someone loved was mourned. Every tragedy leaves a mark on the people who are left to mourn.
It is awful how one second of a life can alter it forever. And alter the lives of others forever, too.
So, here are the events discovered, without comment. I’ve added some nonfatal accidents too.
