resident's shock as car slams through fence
Burnham-On-Sea police have appealed for witnesses to come
forward after a car slammed through a fence and into a garden
early this morning (Sunday, April 10th).
Police were called to the junction of Apex Drive
and Burnham Road at around 1am when a dark red Peugeot 106 smashed
through the road sign and fence.
Derrick Brown told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The
police told us that investigations are underway after the car
went straight through our fence. It was probably prevented going
further in to the garden because it struck the road sign."
"We didn't hear a thing until 3am when the
recovery truck arrived to tow the damaged car away. It was quite
a shock, though, to see the damage."
He added: "This is a dangerous road junction
and I am surprised more accidents don't occur.
