Article I read in the US said both drivers were tested and neither showed any sign of alcohol.
If I was in an accident I would ask the police for a breathalyzer test just to prevent later accusations. (of course I drink rarely and very little when I do)
I may be mistaken, but doesn't that bit of A149 run through the Royal Estate, already being private land... although partially open to the public... and couldn't that be said of most of the UK and Commonwealth as most of it belongs to his wife. Only more so on this particular bit of road.
Ah righto just like all the rest of his lfe.....giving instructions for lesser minions to do the actual work,
you've probably guessed I'm no fan of the man who has never heard the word "NO" in all his life.
Unhurt, seen by a Doctor but no scan on his head, don’t believe that for one moment. Brain springs a leak later, after such an accident and nobody ordered a scan, yeah right.
Bet he was Hospital and back before it hit the news.
I was going to say that I might be of the opinion he could have went for the tumble on purpose, to show the peasants on ARRSE there is no need to keep picking him in the deadpool as he isn't going anytime soon.
The A149 is quite dangerous where it passes through the Sandringham estate. The road is dead straight and people drive at ridiculous speeds. For some reason (IIRC) there are no cameras to inhibit the local drag racers.
I used to visit Wolferton quite often (Holts), and the A149is noticeably too fast for the small roads and tracks that open onto it. Its often hard to pull out onto the road because of the poor side road visibility vs the speed of approaching traffic, and I imagine its particularly tricky for an elderly driver with slower reactions and also coping with blinding winter sun.
Let he that is without guilt cast the first stone
its Norfolk , very quite and on the Sandringham estate, I ride there to see a close relative ( no not the Queen), try the M4 near Reading, or the Birmingham ring road when all the young asian men in their supercars drive like cretins, thats more worrying
Looking at the photos, I suspect that Phil has been T-boned by the other car.
My money is on the other car having come through the 'give way' a tad quickly and having smacked the rear corner of the Rangie View attachment 372519
I suspect that someone's driving license may be under scrutiny and it won't be Phil's.
