Two cars crash into Mistley garden in one day
TWO cars crashed through a fence into a garden following icy conditions on the roads.
Christine Lewkowytsch, of Rigby Avenue, Mistley, said the accidents on Saturday, January 19, could have proven fatal.
She says her neighbour saw a car at around 3.45pm speed round the road’s corner so fast it spun on ice three times before knocking a concrete post and her husband’s car.
The car landed in the couple’s garden and took their gate with it.
Hours later while they slept on Saturday night and Sunday morning, another car hurtled towards their garden and knocked the post over.
