Have you been injured in a car accident in South Kesteven that caused a roof to collapse on to you?
The local district of South Kesteven is found in the Lincolnshire county within England and it was the site of a petrol station that had a vehicle crash into it in a car accident South Lakeland. The incident happened in August 2008 at the BP shop at Kates Bridge that is located near Thurlby. After the car accident in South Kesteven, scaffolding was used to keep the building propped up.
The driver of the vehicle was luckily not badly hurt and only needed mild first aid treatment from the ambulance crews. The manager of the BP shop, Gladys Wright, said after the incident that repairs would not be made until the insurance assessors have determined the extent of the damage, but the scaffolding would help to keep the shop open in the meantime. Gladys commended the cashier who was working at the time of the car accident in South Lakeland, Karen Edwards, as she had immediately called the local police and carried out the required procedures in the case of an incident like this.
Also, there was a lucky escape for a couple who live in the flat, that is above the BP shop, preparing to leave their flat when the car accident in South Kesteven happened. They had been moments away from being in the front of the shop and only felt tremors when the vehicle hit the petrol station. The couple will continue to stay in the flat above the BP shop but have been advised to avoid entering the building from the front door.
Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue were part of the first emergency crews to attend the scene of the incident and have spoken about how they were aware that this particular car accident had the potential for a fire to break out with petrol providing a flammable atmosphere.
