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." '

Oxford crash leaves Vauxhall overturned in Iffley Road

Emily Kerr, Green Party city councillor for the St Mary's ward, said: "A neighbour tells me this is the fourth car which has flipped near their house since they’ve been living in my ward.

"Each year on Oxfordshire’s roads there are 30,000 accidents. Let’s face it, dangerous driving is the real risk on our roads, not e-scooters or cyclists."
