A stormy night, a busy intersection with no traffic light (the light was taken out by a blown transformer).
Two vehicles, neither driver doing anything wrong collide, one survives, the other doesn’t.
The surviving driver, a young woman was placed in a situation, where she did nothing wrong, but ended up killing an elderly man. He lived his life. She has to live hers having been put in a situation through no fault of her own.
What is the lesson from this story? Situations happen you cannot plan for.
And the band played on.
