AN INVESTIGATION has been launched after a BMW was badly damaged after it crashed into a pillar in a supermarket car park.

The silver car smashed into the concrete structure after the driver lost control of the vehicle, which was carrying three passengers, firefighters said.

Paramedics were also called to Morrisons, in Blackburn, after the driver rang police to tell them about the crash which happened after the store was closed.

One of the men who was sat in the back of the car and was in his 20s, suffered an injury to his eye and was taken to the Royal Blackburn Hospital.

The car hit the pillar head on, causing the front end of it to fold in.

A probe has now been launched into the circumstances of the crash.

Last summer police were made aware of motorists driving ‘recklessly’ on the roof of the car park in souped-up hatchbacks and off-road buggies.

But a police spokesman said today they believed there was no longer a problem of that kind.

Morrisons however said they will continue to monitor the car park and ensure 'it is not used in an irresponsible and dangerous manner'.

Acting crew manager Kirsty McCreesh, from Blackburn Fire Station, said emergency services were called around 8.20pm on Monday, 20 minutes after the Railway Road store closed.

MORE TOP STORIES:

She said: “The driver had lost control of the car.

“It had gone into the pillar so the front end was not looking very pretty.

“All of the passengers were out on arrival, we just made the scene safe.”

The Morrison’s spokesman said: “The car park must remain accessible in the evenings to allow access for staff and other businesses.

“We will continue to work closely with the police to discuss if there is more that can be done.”

Shear Brow Councillor Suleman Khonat said: “These things can be fatal. There could have been anybody walking past."

Town centre sergeant Nick Everett said: “Police were called to a report of a road traffic collision on Morrisons car park.

“It has been investigated by officers from Greenbank Police station.”

He added that he believed the issue of dangerous driving on the car park had been resolved last summer.

No arrests had been made.

I don't think an 85 year old driver would (deliberately) set out to do something like this. Young drivers would because they don't care about the consequences of their actions on others;typical chavving behaviour is their forte, big bore exhausts, blaring stereos, and no concern for others.

On the contrary Abigail, we really do know how serious it is, that's the whole point. It would have been catastrophic if the brother you are trying to defend, had collided with a member of staff who might have had a legitimate reason to be on the car park.

Comendable to stick for your bruv but I think this story has gained traction because so many people are hacked off with wannabe schumachers on ego trips driving aggresively usually in german cars. Fortunately no one was seriously hurt this time.

I don't think an 85 year old driver would (deliberately) set out to do something like this. Young drivers would because they don't care about the consequences of their actions on others;typical chavving behaviour is their forte, big bore exhausts, blaring stereos, and no concern for others.
I encounter plenty of older drivers behaving dangerously and aggressively on the road and around car parks. People don't suddenly become mature and sensible at a particular age, though I daresay a few kill themselves off before they reach old age.

i dont think anybody, even chavs deliberately trash there cars. your assuming and stereotyping.
An elderly driver would do this? You're having a laugh! The reason the roads are more dangerous these days is because of aggressive speeding all over the place! Our ethnic cousins high on drugs/drink regularly and deliberately crash their cars to see what they can get out of insurance to live their drink and drugs lifestyle and have a life of Riley, and they along with young silly british chavs DO do things like this.
A few weeks after I passed my driving test I was driving down Whitebirk Drive and along Yew Tree Drive sticking to the 50mph, 40mph, 30mph and then 50mph speed limit while legitimately using the outside lane to pass slower traffic. There was someone in front of me and solid traffic to the side of me, so I couldn't go faster or move over.
I was tailgated all the way by a bloke in an old blue Peugeot who, as soon as I accelerated ahead of the lead car in the inside lane, swept round me on the inside with his hand on his horn and leaning out of his window giving me abuse. He would have been in his 70s and he told me at the next set of lights he didn't care what the speed limit was, I should have been f*cked for driving at it. I encountered the same chap driving through Clayton-Le-Moors tailgating people and sounding his horn at each person he was following as they slowed and turned off the road in front of him as he objected to them momentarily slowing him down as they turned.

On the contrary Abigail, we really do know how serious it is, that's the whole point. It would have been catastrophic if the brother you are trying to defend, had collided with a member of staff who might have had a legitimate reason to be on the car park. And as far as it being nobody else's business, you are wrong again! It is incidents like this that drive up the insurance policies of the law abiding drivers.
The only other thing I will say is that I refer you to my first comment. Cars are not toys!
PS
Quite right HB,
On reflection maybe this guy is worried if this incident is covered by his insurance, maybe concocting some story as to how it may have happened accidentally? (- he has had plenty of time to state his case).

The most expensive region in the UK for insurance is the north west £780, cheapest Scotland £383, London is £631.
i.e it is less risky to drive in London than Lancashire!

Why should we subsidise someone elses stupidity?




Regional breakdown

Anglia: £495.37

People basically want, or may feel they need to be informed, Unfortunately the minimal reporting by LT has brought about the inquisitive (or even nosey nature) of many, In no way should the person concerned be held responsible to update all & Sundry about something which is obviously of a very private & personal nature. (possibly this is why LT are not updating either)

If people are putting lives*, property or car insurance premiums at risk for fun in a public place then it surely is in the public interest, (as oppossed to something that is merely interesting to the public).

* A worker, or family member could easily have been in the vicinity waiting to be picked up.

Just hope we dont have to pay the price for this.

Goodness me, looking at the state of the crashed car then it seems that it was either being driven at too high a speed than is safe in a car park OR these wonderful BMW engineers have really gone to town on designing a superb vehicle with a fantastic crumple zone to protect the occupants.

Yes I will reply, why do you think the premiums are high in the North West & in particular blackburn? Numerous times groups of pakistanis have been caught causing accidents with innocent motorists around blackburn. Thats a documented fact! Your reply????
