Elderly motorist left 'shaken'
after Burnham town centre collision
Burnham-On-Sea pensioner was left "shaken" after a two
car collision in the town centre on Monday morning (January 26th)
Ford Fiesta collided with a parked vehicle near Palmers, the butchers
shop, in the High Street and then slammed into a sign post, as
Mike Gould of Palmers told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The motorist
seemed to lose control of the car, which was an automatic drive."

a loud bang."
