Monumental mistake leaves driver red-faced

Three key ingredients – speed, rain and darkness – were a recipe for disaster for one Takeo driver on Monday night.

The man was en route to the capital when he made a monumental error of judgment and failed to make a turn in time, causing him to hit Takeo’s Independence Monument.

Thankfully, the reckless driver sustained only minor injuries, while the monument remained independently upright. The police arrived at the scene to impound the vehicle and discuss compensation with the driver.
