Answer: Reckless driving, the inexperience of drivers, mechanical failures etc are the causes of road accidents. Incidentally, I am an eyewitness to a serious road accident. It was a cool winter morning last year. I was walking to my school. At one stage, I saw a pedestrian who was walking down the pavement. He was trying to go to the others side of the road. His movement was very clumsy which indicated that he was a newcomer to the city. The shaky man attempted several times to cross the road, but each time he failed. The driven by desperation, he began to run across the road. He did not think what might happen to him. I became nervous thinking about the imminent danger. And unfortunately, I was too far away to prevent him from doing that. Soon the terrible thing happened. The poor man was knocked down by a speeding minibus and more cruelly so, another minibus trampled over his mutilated body. I was struck with bitter grief. Somehow, I reached to school, but could not concentrate on my lessons. The painful scenes of the accident haunt me still today.
