Car crashes into building - please post your Local news stories

Running this one up the flagpole to see who salutes... 

I just don't remember this being a thing until recently, now it seems a daily occurrence.
Could it be that there are drivers not up to the job, too many cars; should houses be made to ride in single file, shops put on high viz, why are we putting newer buildings in danger like this, it's irresponsible.

'A Dorset Police spokesperson said: "Dorset Police was called at 12.48pm on Thursday, August 13, to a report of a collision involving a car and a wall outside Iceland on Poole Road in Bournemouth.

"It is reported that the vehicle was also in collision with a pedestrian, but they did not require medical treatment." '

Sarah Chandler's own tweet with a short video is here:

In a second tweet she said "I've lost count of how many cars I've seen smashed into the railings on this stretch" and in the video with that tweet a Safer Streets campaigner states that in a recent study 91% of drivers were speeding.

Released without charge.

Could have happened to any driver who was driving to standard and within the speed limit.

How bad is the damage?

I was very underwhelmed by the bright red Bentley SUV - was expecting it to be something driven by Avengers Steed or Jason King of Department S.

I don't know what you mean, I was walking by the canal, saw the van and thought a photo appropriate for this thread.

Wasn't a bump in the road, it was a table top protected pedestrian crossing.

The Arby's hit by the school bus has been hit again on the other side.

 A vehicle crashed into Arby’s in North Peoria for the second time in just two weeks.

Peoria Police said an elderly woman behind the wheel accidentally hit the gas when she should have hit the brakes. The car backed into the front door of Arby’s on Allen Road on Sunday afternoon, which has now been boarded up. No one was injured.

An Arby’s employee said the fast food restaurant now has just one working door.

This incident comes just 13 days after a Dunlap Middle School bus crashed into the back of the same restaurant by the the drive-thru, which has since been shut down.

New silver lining level unlocked in quest not to blame or even mention a driver for what happened:

One Stop closes in Magpie Hall Road, Chatham, after car crashes into building

Following the crash, it became clear the shop would have to close and rather than throw out perishable items, staff donated around £1,000 worth of groceries to homeless charity Gillingham Street Angels.

Man arrested after car crashes into Grays house on Christmas Day

Surprised to see a hint that the driver was actually at fault and it wasn't an "innocent mistake".
