    Naughty white van crashes into a cottage.
    "A white van has crashed through the front door of a listed 16th Century thatched cottage. It is thought the vehicle came off at a bend on Ampthill Road, in Maulden, Bedfordshire, on Tuesday before it crossed a grass verge, went through a hedge and embedded itself in the house."

    The van lived up to the reputation of vehicles of its kind, and kidnapped a most unfortunate gentleman:

    "A 34-year-old man from Maulden was arrested on suspicion of being unable to drive through drink or drugs."

    Married couple knocked down and killed by car while out walking

    A vicious and vindictive vehicle.

    "Detectives are not looking for anyone else in relation to the incident but are appealing for any witnesses or anyone who may have dash cam footage to contact them on 101"

    Just the car then.

    Police very keen to get hands on dashcam footage for fatalities, but most forces (including our own) default to being happy to ignore and fob off such evidence of 'lesser' crimes on dashcam/headcam if contact is not made by luck. For me, it's the opposite of preventative policing.

    BBC thumbnail synopsis causes hope that reporting of traffic related incidents has "turned a corner" - hope dashed.

    "The B&M lorry driver wedged the truck under the cycle path bridge on Crewe Road North in Edinburgh."

    A twofer on the BBC today:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-north-east-orkney-shetland-41856011

    "A man has died after being struck by a car in Aberdeen.

    The 29-year-old was hit by a Renault Megane on the A947 between Stoneywood roundabout and Mugiemoss Road at about 00:30."

    No apparent driver.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-41858923

    "A man in a wheelchair who was struck by an articulated lorry has died in hospital.

    ...

    The 52-year-old lorry driver was uninjured."

    Well that's a relief eh?
