If people are so ill they all always collapsing on trains, or in their cars maybe they should not even leave their houses and endanger everyone else.

Surely it didn't happen so suddenly she was unable to pull on to the hard shoulder? Stopping in the middle lane of a motorway she could have been struck by another vehicle and killed (and possibly killed others)
