Man has lucky escape after head on crash

First published in News by

A MAN is “lucky to be alive” after his car flipped over, ploughed into a garden wall and landed on its roof during a head-on crash.
 

Now fed-up and frightened residents living on Noak Hill Road, Billericay - which has already seen one fatal crash in recent years - are calling for urgent action to cut the speed limit before someone else is killed.
 

The drama unfolded when a man, travelling in a grey Renault Espace towards Basildon, crashed head on with a woman travelling in the opposite direction in a blue Ford KA.


With the force of the impact the man’s car flipped into the air, and crashed into the wall of a home before coming to rest on its roof.

I wouldn't have thought a head-on crash could be attributed to the speed limit in place. Someone overtaking maybe?

Think about it, maybe it was on top of the vehicle attached to a rack until it turned over.

Drugs ,booze the usual story.
How on earth these people roll their cars.
You have to be doing some serious speed combined with throwing the steering around to mess up like this

Thats my belief too. Some serious speed. OK kneejerk reaction here..there should be a speed limit on that road. Think we can all agree on that one.

One problem though is that there is already a speed limit on that section. So if the people already break one law changing the law so they still break it...is that actually going to help?

No.

There's nothing wrong with that road. Nor I would suggest the vehicles concerned. The fault is in the fools driving the vehicles.

How can you legislate away bad drivers then...tell me because I'd really like to hear a solution to that one.
