Another car hits house story

From the BBC:

Two members of a family suffered broken bones when a car ploughed into their home as they sat watching television.

Robert Beattie, his wife Mel and 15-year-old daughter Tash were sitting in their living room when the car smashed into the house. The woman and girl are recovering in hospital following Friday's crash.

A 26-year-old man from Worcester has been arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and released under investigation.


The road is easy enough to find on Google Maps, the house appears to be the one on the right as you turn in from Battenhall Road. So exactly the location most likely to be hit by a car.

Shoddy journalism AGAIN! What's it worth? What's the car worth? The latter, probably sod all now . . . .

O/T but I have just had an email from ebay.de. Apparently they are ditching their tax avoiding company eBay Europe SĂ rl, Luxembourg; changing their terms and conditions for all EU members other than the UK. They are becoming a German business and will be paying German tax (Umsatzsteuer).

Angie must be happy.

An even better car hits house story.... The house which is most frequently hit by vehicles in the UK is in Kirkby Stephen in Cumbria. According to the report below, the occupants say they "no longer wanted to remain in their home..". Shame on them.
