Penny Clarke has been involved in a road accident near Oxford. Last Thursday she was on her way to pick up her granddaughter from school when the collision occurred. Penny was driving along the road when she passed a police car parked on the side of the road after what may have been some kind of an incident. The vehicle was a large BMW X5 which the police force used for ‘armed response’ vehicle. The driver of the police car pulled out into the road without indication or checking upcoming traffic. Poor Penny’s car was written off, air bags inflated and Penny taken to the hospital in the back of an ambulance. Penny is at home now, very sore from, most likely, from when the airbags inflating along with the seat belt.
