This week’s Abingdon Herald has an account of the car crash at 1 a.m on Sunday morning. The speeding car first hit a parked vehicle and then careered into the River Thames. Both driver and passenger were able to get out.

    Surely cheaper to use a regular car wash?

    Was the driver practicing for a Darwin Award ?

    Driving into the river is my worst nightmare. I seriously thought twice about moving to Abingdon precisely because of this.
