Having been the innocent party in a fatal accident, I think the Mercury needs to take a long hard look at the reporting of this death of a young man.
The lady in the car has been subjected to some rather nasty comments on social media.
While it is too early to lay any blame for the crash, there does seem to be a lot of "poor me" from the relatives of the deceased.
I am sure the lady in the car is feeling devastated and hopefully has support from family and friends, if not the Mercury!

The Prime Minister recommends to treat Australians like adults - no more rules. Do what you like.
I actually agree with him. I'm all for it, but Mr Morrison I have to say I hope there are no Rafferty's rules that we witness everyday from you and your ministers.

I'm sure many share my surprise reading the front-page story Independent's Day, where the outgoing ALP career Mayor of Shellharbour, states she is 'perplexed' at being replaced by the independent candidate Chris Homer.
Yes, it is a democracy, where voters make decisions at the ballot box as to who they believe is best suited to lead their city.
The recent Killalea predicament was clearly one which drew great concern and some considerable ire about how civic leaders represent their fellow constituents when it comes to our natural and social environment.
Any novice could see it was a bellwether moment in history. I found it so compelling an issue myself, that I drove from Tweed Heads to see what the fuss was about and express my support with the thousands of residents and surfers.
I must strongly disagree with the outgoing Mayors parting swipe that 'change for the sake of change isn't necessarily a good change'.
Shellharbour, in all its natural beauty is progressive, and needs motivated people with an ear to the ground who move with the times.

We should of been in lockdown a long time ago. The Premier has left this too late and it's out of control now. Keeping everything open to make money back into the government an absolute joke.
There was nothing wrong with click and collect and staying safe.
