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 "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's discussion forums within minutes of the accident occurring. contributor Nikki Triggol sent us several photos of the car, pictured here, soon after the mid-morning collision, which left a sign post damaged.
