Yes sounds ridiculous don't it, well heres another one that happened near my home town. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/n...re/4427362.stm, I drove past it the day after and boy was lucky, what a mess but now you wouldn't even know there had been a crash.


P.S gutted about the football, they were crap.

EDIT; In that report, over to the right, there's another incident that happened a few miles down the road, two killed at petrol pumps, I know the Basingstoke area well, it's not far from Portsmouth where I was born, I've filled up a few times at those pumps too.

Excuse me editing your post, Brookfield.

Not fast on a straight, dry road, 50 - 60 was estimated, but this was a nasty bend, they'd had cars in their garden before, over the years, but never in their bedroom!!, don't forget they hit a mound & literally took off, OK Virgil, Thunderbirds are GO!!!
