Asked by the Coroner at a Hemel Hempstead inquest to describe what he saw of a fatal accident, a man in a car involved opened with: “Well, sir. I was sitting in the back of the car looking at nothing, talking to my daughter-in-law about nothing in particular and not thinking about nothing at all, when there was a terrific crash, the car toppled gently over and there we were all of a heap, sir.”
