Double accident on Goose Green Way

There was a major "double accident" on Goose Green Way yesterday evening at about 10.30 pm. A car travelling from the direction of the Shopping Centre collided with the first set of
pedestrian traffic lights and demolished one of them.

It then carried on and collided with a lamp post near the Gravel Hill Rd pedestrian crossing, bringing down the lamp post. The car ended up on its roof, but the driver climbed out and ran off. Two other cars coming behind then collided with the demolished lamp post.

It's suggested that the first driver may have been doing close to 100 mph, but of course speeds can be deceptive. The police were on the scene very quickly.
