Wouldn't be at all surprised if this is partially down to the council's failure to cut the grass along this stretch. It has been nigh-on impossible to check for approaching cars when turning out of side-roads for several weeks now.

Come on LT - are you sure this happened on Monday? I was told about this accident on Sunday - unless of course there were two identical accidents involving identical vehicles in exactly the same place on consecutive days.
