On my way to school on Friday, I came across this scene. This fruit truck was turned on its side approximately 30 meters from the front gate of our school, and about 5 feet from the bottom of the ramp that leads to our front gate. Our school patrol students were shuffling students around the truck as they entered the school grounds. Keep in mind that the truck turned over on a road that is 15 feet wide at best. Cars need to pull up onto the sidewalk to allow others to pass. This is more of a back alley than a road, really. The driver must have been going at quite a fair clip to flip on such a narrow road. It's a tad worrying to note that this happened right where 95% of our students walk every morning and afternoon.
