Fisherman Returning Home with Catch Struck and Killed by Car

This man was poor and left for a day to fish for crab to bring food home for the kids. On his way back while riding a bicycle with a crate full of crab, he was struck and killed by a car.

The accident happened on Saturday December 29, 2012, on the Várzea Nova stretch of the BR-101 highway in Santa Rita, near João Pessoa, the capital city of the state of Paraíba, Brazil. The driver of the black Volkswagen that hit the old man said the bicyclist attempted to cross the busy highway in spite of a lot of traffic. The driver did not flee but called the ambulance instead. Unfortunately, there was nothing anyone could do for the bicyclist.

Here’s a video from the scene of the accident:

And a gallery of a few photos. The photos came in with the genitalia censored. I don’t know why they made the blackout box so large – perhaps the victim was well hung?

  1. Believe it or not, thanks to the brazilian taxes, that Volkswagen Gol Rallye costs over 20,000 US$ over here, and it doesn’t even come standard with Air conditioning or AirBags. Brazil, the land with the highest taxes among the third world countries and the worst public services.

  2. He had a much better day out on the water than I did on my last fishing trip. My next stop on the way home was to the supermarket for supper. His’ll be to the morgue… That really sucks for a guy who was just trying to feed his family.
