“CASE REPORT: A 26-year-old man, after a drinking binge, drove into a tram building site and collided with a track-grinding machine which left a fist-size hole in his windscreen. He then hit a construction worker who was catapulted onto the car roof. The worker held on to the antenna and the windscreen hole, while the car drove on for 7 km, reaching speeds of 90 km h(-1). The victim suffered several fractures and survived with relatively little consequential damage. The investigation showed the driver to have been under the influence of alcohol and cannabis. In trial, he claimed loss of memory and stated that he had noticed neither the accident nor the man on his car roof.”
