Daily Mail- Police officers attending the ‘horrific’ accident on the M1 in Northamptonshire were shocked to see drivers crawling along the to get a better look at the scene and take pictures. The quick-thinking officers set up their own camera and recorded all the motorists on the opposite carriageway who used their phones while driving – itself an offence. As the police caught the careless drivers, the 21-year-old female trucker lay trapped inside her wagon for four-and-a-half hours battling to stay alive. A staggering 80 people were seen using their camera phones to get a picture of the smash. Police have now released some of the images and sent letters to the owners of the cars warning them that they were committing an offence and highlighting the dangers of their behaviour. Sergeant Nick Gray, from the Collision Investigation Unit said: ‘After completing our investigations at the scene of the collision, we were astonished to see so many motorists using their mobile phones to capture an image of what was a horrific collision. Sgt Gray said that in a number of cases the motorists who were caught taking pictures were using a company vehicle. The employers received the letters from the police.
What kind of fantasy land are the police in the UK living in? Fucking hardo city.News flash, bobbies: This is how the world works. People make phone calls, text, check their Twitter feed and masturbate when they drive; why is taking a picture of an accident that much different? What do you expect people to do? Just drive by an accident and not slow down to document the carnage? Like I’m really sorry that your truck got totaled and the rescue team had to pull out the Jaws of Life to try and pry you from the twisted hulk of metal you’re stuck inside, but I just waited in 20 minutes of traffic and need fuck you if you don’t think I’m going to find some way to make up for it. It’s not my fault that your life threatening crash is going to look great with a Valencia filter on Instagram.
PS- The heartless felon in that picture is rocking the best phone and facial hair combination I have ever seen in my life
