Woman Struck and Killed by Laptop in Car Wreck
Yesterday morning, according to the CBC News, Sergeant Roger Morrow of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police told the press, "'What we believe happened [was] that she was struck in the back of her head and neck with this laptop computer. She simply didn't have it secured within the confines of her car, and ultimately it has been the instrument of her death.'"
Her brother, Michael Pratt, addressed the press, as well, imploring the public "not to keep stuff [in your vehicle] that can get airborne or hit you." While Heather's mother Marilyn Storey clutched her daughter's laptop, he added, "'[Your] family, and people that care about you, really will miss you when you're gone.'"
We can only reiterate Pratt's words of caution with hopes that such a young life will not again be taken by such a tragic accident.
