This is a true story that happened in May 2008 in Wolverhampton. It was reported to be a sunny day so the beer garden was reasonably full when a car came careering of the road into the beer garden and crashing into a picnic table.
Were there any casualties in this car collision?
An ambulance was called but luckily in this car crash there were no major injuries. However, had there been anyone sitting at the picnic table the driver crashed into this could have cause a nasty road traffic accident claim for the driver.
Was the cause of the car collision announced?
The exact reason why the car crash occurred was not broadcast at the time but there have been several concerns raised throughout the years as the dual carriageway he came off has a 70mph limit. This means that this road traffic accident could have caused a lot more casualties and possibly even fatalities should any members of the public have been in the car’s path.
Unfortunately, car accidents such as this happen more than we expect. Whether the road is 70mph or 50mph limit it can still cause not only driver injuries but pedestrian casualties should a car get out of control and come off the road. The main thing to remember is to always focus on the road ahead and never let yourself get distracted. The moment you start thinking about other things or looking at other cars is when accidents can easily happen.
