Patay last night.

We had a whole mass of emergency vehicles whizz past our place last night, the tree here 1100 metres up the road from us bears the scars of the incident. A vehicle whacked the tree, killed the driver and wounded his passenger.
I suppose because it happened in a regional area and outside the hours of 10:00-15:00 Mon-Fri it can't be considered newsworthy but it still adds a number to our yearly toll, it may even lift us into the blackspot zone as more deaths have happened on our road.
Patay is Philippine for dead, the first word of their language I've learned.

  1. I saw this in the news. When I read that the person was 44 I breathed a sigh of relief.
