Elderly motorist left 'shaken' after Burnham town centre collision

A Burnham-On-Sea pensioner was left "shaken" after a two car collision in the town centre on Monday morning (January 26th)

A Ford Fiesta collided with a parked vehicle near Palmers, the butchers shop, in the High Street and then slammed into a sign post, as pictured here.

Mike Gould of Palmers told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The motorist seemed to lose control of the car, which was an automatic drive."

"The car went into reverse, instead of forward, and collided with a parked car behind, before spinning into the sign post with a loud bang."

He said no-one was injured, although the elderly driver had been left "shaken" by the incident.

News of the accident broke here on Burnham-On-Sea.com's discussion forums within minutes of the accident occurring.

Burnham-On-Sea.com contributor Nikki Triggol sent us several photos of the car, pictured here, soon after the mid-morning collision, which left a sign post damaged.
