Really difficult to keep the car under control along that straight 30mph road ,unless you are drunk or on the phone.

No offences? How about driving without due care and attention? If he had hit someone, would it still be no offences or would the pedestrian be at fault for being in the wrong place at the time of an “accident”?

May have had a track rod end fail, can make a car swerve like that. Be nice to know. I assume as no charges means it is all insured and road legal. Hopefully home owner will get a new wall. Sadly I do agree with others, could have been on phone. :/
