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." '

A bit more premeditated rather than irresponsible.  https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/moment-driver-stolen-digger-rips-3...

Is that the silver Fiesta there in street view from 2012?

A 73-YEAR-OLD man has been charged with drink driving in Romsey after a car crashed into a wall.

Police were called to Church Road at around 3.30pm on Thursday, September 7, after reports of a Toyota Prius colliding with a wall.

Roger Arthur Harris, 73, of Rudd Lane, Romsey, has been charged with driving whilst over the alcohol limit.

He is due to appear before Southampton Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, September 28.

Was the 73yrold just unlucky enough to be walking past when the car crashed into the wall? These autonomous cars are taking the next step and getting patsies to take the blame....

Is this part of Sunak's 'Plan for Drivers', in that he wants more drivers inside these wayward cars, smashing up the place?

Clearly a war on motorists, as reported elsewhere in the cesspit press.

Cambourne drivers are obliviously right, as focussing on driving safely means loss of concentration on others using the public highway. It's obvious to everyone except Highways England, local highways engineers, local councillors, drivers, policing, CPS, judges, juries.....er...

His convertible converted the building from habitable to uninhabitable. Possibly because the building wasn't wearing hi-viz nor a helmet. His insurers claim the building appeared from nowhere, without signalling, into the path of their insured client. Obviously contributory negligence.

Cutting corners. No indicators were used in the making of this idiot.

Built a bypass that takes most motor traffic over the railway line instead of under it.  The underpass was also converted to one-way alternate working with traffic lights with (some) more space for cyclists & pedestrians.

No, I don't think so. But this is a Fiesta at what seems to be the location - pretty common car. It's on the pavement, it's getting ideas about being in the house.

Welcome to "car crashes into building".  In the most notable instances, it's "man arrested after car crashes into wall" like he's a rogue builder putting up walls in the middle of the road.

That's lucky that it only hit someone in a car as it could have been very nasty to a pedestrian etc. I hope she recovers quickly from that

'A huge young Vogon guard stepped forward and yanked them out of their straps with his huge blubbery arms. “You can’t throw us into space,” yelled Ford, “we’re trying to write a book.”

“Resistance is useless!” shouted the Vogon guard back at him. It was the first phrase he’d learned when he joined the Vogon Guard Corps.'

Well, as long as the wall had passed a test and paid road tax that's just a sad incidental accident on the forward march to a better future.

Perhaps a suitable memorial for it would be for its brethren to join it in forming the road surface?

We've seen worse.

You are right though, not really a building.

The level crossing I go through at North Camp has a big pile of broken gates. It's not one you have to go through either, there's a big road bridge over the line. If the gate is down and my train hasn't arrived yet, other side of course, I can do it, under two minutes I reckon, hard out of breath effort though, worth a go...
