one cold November night, whilst out on a regular patrol
of the town's back roads, it seems his unspoken wishes may
have finally been granted, when a mysterious man appears
suddenly in the middle of the road. Unable to slow down
in time, Alex hits the stranger, before spinning wildly
into the path of an oncoming vehicle. It's a terrible accident,
but luckily Alex escapes uninjured. The others are not so
lucky. The man in the second car slips into a coma, and
the man in the road suffers concussion, several cracked
ribs, and a broken leg.
next day, Alex and his deputy are waiting to question the
mysterious "road guy" as he's become known. Who
is he? Where is he from? What was he doing in the middle
of the road? They ask a thousand questions, but the man
has no answers. He will not speak, will not acknowledge
anybody, and shows no signs of emotion.
