Second crash prompts major concerns
2:00pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
A SECOND crash at a Clacton home in a matter of days has prompted urgent calls for a speed camera to save lives.
Peter Sharp was concerned after a car ploughed through his front garden wall in St Johns Road on Sunday October 13.
It hit a post and took out half of the thick wall.
But his fears for safety were raised even further when a second crash saw a car smash through the remaining part of his wall last Wednesday.
The 67-year-old said: “My wife is in a state of shock - this isn’t being unlucky, something is wrong with this road.
“It’s only a matter of time before something really bad happens."
Essex County councillor Andy Wood is set to take the issue to county hall.
