15 September 1996

Strange, what with the impending 20th anniversary on 15 October, I remember something similar from 15 September 1996 which I’ve not thought about in years. A car crash at Puddletown near Dorchester in the early hours that day killed four young men. All were in their late teens. A colleague at work knew one of them and was very upset. Strange how random memories are triggered.

    Strangely I remember this crash too, a childhood friend of mine’s older brother was friends with the 4, he was supposed to be in the car but last minute did not go. I remember this well but I was only 5 or 6 at the time. I have never found anything about it in the news online, as I suppose it is so long ago now…
