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." '

Three people were injured when a car crashed into a North Portland, Oregon, USA building Wednesday, Nov. 22, 2023:

Firefighters extinguished the fire shortly after 2:30 a.m. and found no one inside the three-story building in the 2200 block of North Lombard Street.

Two of the people in the compact hatchback appeared to suffer traumatic injuries and the third person suffered moderate injuries, Portland Fire & Rescue officials said in a statement. They released no other details.

Wall reduced to rubble after car smashes into it in Oswestry at about 10pm on Wednesday evening. I'm struggling to work out how someone is so incompetent that they can't drive safely along Llwyn Road [street view]. Shropshire Star is putting more and more articles behind a paywall (£6/month ), including this one.

Flipped car flies at woman and child in Solihull

Quote:

A woman and her child were left shaken but unhurt when a car veered off a road and flipped on its side right in front of them.

The crash happened on Warwick Road in Olton, Solihull, at about 16:00 GMT on Saturday, West Midlands Police said.

CCTV footage showed the woman pushing her child in a buggy before the Peugeot mounted pavement, hit a post and turned over.

The woman driving the car suffered cuts, said the force, adding an investigation was under way and it was reviewing footage.

Cars are hunting pedestrians again.

Isn't that for "Drivers and Their Problems"? From what I've read, the cars spontaneously fall over all of their own accord, that's got to be a problem for their drivers. Although, having said that, I'm not sure it can be DATP as there is so rarely a driver involved
