Car Hits Pub

Posted on the 04 July 2020 by Markwadsworth @Mark_Wadsworth

From the BBC:
A car smashed through the front of a pub hours before it was due to open for the first time in nearly four months.
The owners of the Swan Inn near Ashford in Kent were woken by a "terrible bang" at about 02:00 BST as a Land Rover crashed into the grade-II building. Landlord Ray Perkins said he was "distraught," adding: "We just don't know why we had such bad luck".
A 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of drink-driving and taking a vehicle without consent.

Going by Google Maps, the pub is on the outside of a fairly sharp bend in Swan Lane. So the idiot driving either missed the bend completely, or maybe he wanted to turn left/north into 'The Street' and fluffed it.
Makes me glad I live in the middle of a long, straight road, I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
