Car Crash Abbotts Ann Road

P1020720 P1020721 (640x480) P1020724On Sunday night (13th December) a person from Little Anne was driving far too fast down the hill into Monxton and skidded across the road, hit the bollard removing it from the ground and then smashing against the wall of Field House, damaging many tiles. The car is a write-off.

The recently-installed bollards proved very effective in reducing the speed of the vehicle, and saving both the wall and the driver from serious damage.

The police and an ambulance attended but fortunately there were no serious injuries.

Monxton Parish Council will now seek to have the bollard re-installed and also add further bollards for more protection.

We are all concerned about speeding drivers through Monxton, so if you can volunteer your time for the Community Speedwatch Scheme it would be very helpful. Please contact Alan Barbone for more information.
