Not sure where the L.T gets its information from but it's far from the truth!

Why is this far from the truth? It is exactly what happened.

apparently a young guy is being done for drink driving - i suspect though this will just be leftover from the previous night. The cars were not badly smashed up considering the huge response and no one was taken away quickly in either the ambulance or the air ambulance so hopefully it wasn't that bad and no ones Christmas will be tarnished.

If you are correct i don't really think that 1 car is "far" from the truth and the police and ambulance service both said it was 4. I agree that the LT are not the best but your comment seems a little pedantic considering the article mainly refers to the fact that the helicopter attended.
