    Arrest the tractor driver immediately! Didn't he know that ' IT' has returned and that we all need to turn into by roads and look the other way when 'IT' travel around?

    even if the landmaster driver was hurt really bad they will not report it. the article seems more concern about gota's vehicle.

    THis dude could not even afford to but a Nissan Sunny(Sentra0 in the USA from his minimum wage salary in the gas station. So How could he can buy a $340000 Land Cruiser? No class, uneducated Rajapakses steal money, promote drugs and thugs. People who vote for them are idiots-probably the most dumbest people on the planet!!!!

    Let us be human above all else. Our prayers to all. Hope this is not a fixed accident like what hapoened to Diana. One never knows. I am glad a son of the soil who is worthy and has served our nation escaped unhurt. Long life!
