It is the dullest of thuds, but loud enough to make everything that heard it stop!
Literally, the earth around is silent, as it takes in what has just happened.
It brings an unbelievable sense of nausea to your stomach.
Then of course the chaos ensues….
That’s what it was like this morning.
I heard the thud, then I saw a lady with a dog and thought that it was a dog that had run onto the road, then the realisation dawned that it was a schoolgirl who had been hit.
Thankfully, she was lucky to get up and walk away, but it could have been much worse.
