w/nw death by the roadside

When touring on my bike, I always have an eye for those little memorials by the roadside. They are often quite touching, connecting a common site with someone´s destiny in the viewer´s mind.....
Be invited to add your pics and stories.

A little plane crashed in the field shortly after take off, due to a stuttering engine. Three young people died, two 23s and a 15 year old.


A 12 year old girl was kidnapped at that spot. Later on the kidnapper killed her and dumped her body into a lake.


Risky overtaking cost 5 lives here, two are remembered.

A woman killed her children then wrecked into a pole making it look like an accident. She got caught of course.
