Drama as out-of-control car hits Mini on dealer’s forecourt

Time 5:03 pm, February 20, 2018

A BMW left the road in Helston, Cornwall – and crashed into the front of a Mini Cooper on a dealership forecourt.

The force of the impact shifted a large granite boulder and covered other cars in lumps of grass and earth at Hilltop Garage, run by Chris Nicholls Motors.

No-one was said to have been hurt in the incident, which took place on February 18, and the BMW driver was questioned by police.

Car Dealer contacted the dealership this afternoon but no-one was available for comment.
