Pensioner left 'shocked' after Burnham-On-Sea seafront crash
The elderly driver of this car was treated for shock on Thursday
(March 3rd) after losing control of her vehicle on Burnham-On-Sea
Paramedics rushed to help the lady - aged in her 70s - after
her Fiat careered off The Esplanade and slammed through two metal
bollards and into the wall outside Burnham's Tourist Information
and ambulance crews were quickly on the scene, as pictured here,
after the accident at 1.14pm.
Western Ambulance Service spokesman Dave Rogers told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"Two ambulance crews were called to The Esplanade shortly
and an elderly lady in her 70s was treated for shock, but she
was otherwise unhurt."
An eyewitness who saw the accident told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It
was fortunate that this did not occur during a busier time of
the year when lots of visitors were about or it could have been
a lot more serious."
