Man accidentally drives car into Sportsman pub

A driver accidentally drove his new Mercedes into a Crosspool pub last week.

After enjoying a meal at The Sportsman on Thursday 3 February, the man left the premises at around 6pm to drive home in the car he’d collected earlier that day from the motor dealer.

Apparently being unacquainted with the layout of the vehicle, he inadvertently engaged forward drive, rather than reverse, and shot forward through the walled bay window, causing extensive damage to the front of the building .

Fortunately no one was sitting near the window at the time, and the driver walked away shaken but uninjured.

The bay window adjacent to the disabled parking spaces at the front of the pub is now boarded up on both the outside and inside.
