Anybody know what happened with the red car which crashed outside the co-op last Sunday morning? The South circ. was closed at around 5:00 am and there was a large emergency service presence but nobody I have spoken too seemed aware of what had happened.

Just looked like a case of bad timing and poor lane discipline from the images I saw. Two vehicles entering the same corner, in opposite directions, at the same time, both choosing to take the path of least resistance.

Reports suggested no serious injuries.

Ok thanks. I think with the crumple zone on modern cars accidents sometimes tend to look worse than they are.

Yeah definitely.

That said, a small Audi vs a lorry is never going to end well.
