The island is populated by 142,000 people. An accident or two a day, would you still consider that bad averages? I think not

Noone was hurt though.. Surely thats the main concern!? No one ever intends to crash, accedents happen.. I’m sure the driver is no idiot, just in shock probably and lucky to have not hurt themselves or aanyone else!
