  1. I saw the aftermath of the crash today. Looked really nasty. Glad that the people involved have not endured serious injury.

    I wrote my car off in exactly the same spot a couple of years ago, and have seen other more minor accidents in the same place. If there are parked cars on Church Road, near the junction (and apparently there was a van there at the time) the crossing has incredibly bad vision when you are approaching with the church on your right. It is sometimes impossible to see cars approaching from the right.

    The policeman on the scene described the crash and then said that someone else nearly did a repeat while he was stood there. I think the council should do something about the parking there to prevent others having accidents too.
