Heard the one about the one-legged nonagenarian driver?

Well, there was this one-legged nonagenarian driver, see, and he

…crashed into the conservatory of the pub at a speed of more than 30mph at about 6pm on Thursday night.

He then reversed onto the nearby A376 before picking up speed and crashing into the building again, causing further damage.

Onlookers described the elderly man, believed to be holidaying in Devon, as "confused".

Another symptom of the marvellous system whereby anyone over 75 is allowed to continue driving without anyone verifying their fitness to do so apart from… the driver!
