    Yikes, I'm glad that nobody was hurt other than apparently the bus driver? I'll have a look for any damage as I pass by today.

    There's some fairly clear damage to the exterior of the Koyama restaurant, but nothing that actually looks dangerous.

    I wonder if any ones parked bicycle was crushed. I have parked my bike there a few times. I wonder what caused the crash, guessing a drunk walked out, quite a few drunks on that road in the evening.

    @Ed1 upon closer inspection there was one very mangled bicycle and the remains of a metal rack, and a partially mangled tree and its metal tree 'protector' behind red plastic barriers, and slightly more damage to the frontage of the restaurant than I had taken in when passing on my bicycle.

    I really had no idea that self-driving cars were out and about in Fife!

    Car plunges into burn after ploughing through Asda hedge



    Two people had to be rescued by firefighters after their car ploughed through a hedge at an Asda supermarket and plunged into a burn. The incident happened near the store on St Leonards Street in Dunfermline at about 12.15pm on Saturday. The pair were removed from the vehicle by specially-trained firefighters and checked over by paramedics at the scene.

    Neither are believed to have been seriously hurt. Their car is understood to have driven through a hedge at the edge of the supermarket's car park. A spokesman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: "We were alerted at 12.15pm to reports of a car in water near St Leonard's Street. "We mobilised a number of fire engines and a specialist water rescue unit. "Firefighters assisted two people from the vehicle to a place of safety before handing them over to the care of paramedics for precautionary checks."

    Shock as car smashes through wall of Craigentinny home

    Naughty Audi.

    I think after the first occasion I'd have invested in a 2-feet-thick reinforced concrete garden wall...

    The space for that should come from the road though not from the owners garden.

    "after the second incident in 1984"

    The wall had a good run.

    There's about 8m of pavement between the road and that front wall as it's on a junction that's been built out.

    "The collision took place on Leith Walk, near its junction with Jane Street, at about 00:40 and involved the 22-year-old and a Kawasaki bike."

    The photo is a cracker too: 3 pavement parkers and one blocked cycle lane. It's Leith Walk Bingo.

    "...vehicle left the road and collided with a railing..."
    https://twitter.com/polscotrpu/status/1031430941804257282
    "...Enquiries are on going in respect of the vehicle's manner of driving..." wasn't there a driver involved at all?

    Focusing briefly on a more fluid transport medium:

    Pretty much impossible to achieve unless you jump a red light that has been red for about 20 seconds.
