Bikes + Third World = Disaster. There’s a good reason why I’m still alive at the age of twenty and that is mainly because I’ve only rode a motorcycle once and I am glad I made that life decision to avoid motorcycles while I am in third world Asia. Well, sort of. The first time I rode a bike was with a friend’s significant other giving me a ride home and yes, we were overspeeding, yes, we weren’t wearing helmets and yes, two pairs of flip flops were involved. Hilarity ensued, though.
What we have here today is a vehicular accident that occurred at Guajajara, in the city of Sao Luis in Brazil on Saturday, August 27. The victims, Vanessa Cristina Sampaio Martins, 32 years old, was sitting on the back of the motorcycle driven by her husband, Alexander Da Silva. The motorcycle bashed her head in which caused her rather instantaneous death. Her husband tried to flee from the scene for fear that he might get incarcerated for driving without a license but, a bit comically, got hit by a bus in the process. He was sent to a county hospital and was treated for injuries which were non life-threatening.
Love your spouses/partners/lovers, don’t put them under dangerous shit. Don’t drive without a license and don’t overspeed. More so, when you try to run from the cops, make sure you look on your left and right to check if there are any large vehicles passing by.
