The trucker who caused a fatal accident is mostly Romanian

by | 30th, October 2016

It all began when the Labour government made Bulgarian and Romanians second-class citizens of Europe. Well, maybe it began way before that. But the point is that when the Daily Mail spotted an accident and that one driver had been on his mobile, the paper made nationality an issue.

“Seconds before four-car pile-up,. Romanian truck on his mobile,” observes the headline.

Would it have been less newsworthy had the driver been British? Reporter Rebecca Camber twice more mentions that driver Razman Rusu is Romanian.

The Telegraph only mentions the now jailed driver’s nationality once, when it becomes relevant to the story:

Rusu, a Romanian national living in the UK, returned to his home country but was arrested on his arrival back in the UK.

The Mirror mentions it once – and not in the headline.

The GetWestLondon website doesn’t mention it all, but does note: “Rusu had been living in the UK but left the country for Romania after the crash.”

The Sun reports: “DASHCAM DUMMY JAILED Terrifying moment lorry driver causes pile-up on M1 while staring at his mobile phone – Razvan Rusu, 30, will serve eight months behind bars after being convicted of dangerous driving.”

That Rusu is Romanian is mentioned once.

The Express however trumps even the Mail.

JAILED: Romanian lorry driver who caused M1 pile-up while distracted by his phone – A ROMANIAN lorry driver fled the country after ploughing into motorway traffic while distracted by his mobile phone.

No police report mentioned the man’s nationality being a factor in the crime.
