Here's an image one doesn't care to see too often. Rounding a corner up into Central country trains just after midnight I was confronted with the aftermath of a hit 'n run. Just 30 seconds earlier this old street fella was knocked down at the crossing. Some American backpackers were first on the scene having witnessed the event. I checked him over for breaks before the cops and medics arrived. He was conscious yet bleeding freely from major lacerations along the right forearm. Plus his elbow was buggered. The backpacker kindly supplied his backpack for the bloke to rest on. Looking at this image now (click to enlarge), I recall the cops approached putting on disposable gloves. A good and sensible policy reminding me I didn't wash up after assisting. That's life I guess.
