  13. 13. Example of short essay (not the best one) with multiple slapstick effect in the accident   The sun peeked behind those fluffy clouds and sprayed its golden silhouttee on those rooftops of the city dwellers as I stepped out of my house to Kesington road. I was taking along that busy main road in the centre of London nearby the market, as I saw a blind specky old man with a stick was walking alone at the market. Suddenly he rushed backward avoiding a group of workers holding a giant mirror heading to the opposite shop. The Chevrolet metallic blue car driver unintentionally lost his steering wheel’s control and seemed unaware of the presence of him, hit him and left him alone scouring for a pair of his dark rayban glasses on the road. Intended to help the blind man, a lanky guy rushed to offer his help. Dragging the blind man, to a safer road shoulder, made him relieved a few second, thus he dashed to pick the glasses . However, there was a lorry in another way speeding and taking over a car in front, oblivion of the helper by the road, thus plunging the helper into a muddy ditch and dragging the blind man for more than 2 feet length lying him on the greenery grass. Screeching breaks and wails broke the silence. The blind man was moaning in anguish of his twisted ankle and back ache while the helper was yelling to the top of his voice of his breaking femur and those stinky splash. The situation got worse and complicated . It was originally a doubled hit and run incident. The car which was being taken over by the lorry collided with the lorry’s back bumper and the following car bumped into its boot. To aggravate the situation about 10 metres away, the same lorry crashed into the electric pole as the driver was turning around while driving and lost his foresight. It occurred in a split of a second and I was dumbfounded , speechless in aweful awe.
