DRIVER SOUGHT AFTER FLEEING ‘MINI’ ADVENTURE INTO GARDENS

The driver of a Mini One is being sought by Police after crashing into the front gardens of 2 properties in Sandown during the early hours of yesterday morning (Saturday).

It was just before 01:45 that the vehicle left the road and crashed into gardens on Perowne Way, narrowly avoiding hitting a terraced row of houses.

When Police arrived on scene in Sandown, the vehicle was found abandoned with the driver and passenger having fled the area. But officers say they are making enquiries to identify those involved.

Yeah, because it’s always the registered owner/keeper driving the fully road-legal motor isn’t it?

Crush the car and ban the Registered owner from driving or owning a car.
Might think twice about lending it out.
