Corsa wrecks Aston Martin on forecourt

20 March, 2013

An Aston Martin DBS has been wrecked by an out-of-control pink Corsa at the Kingshill Esso garage in Swindon.

The owner of the Aston Martin was filling his car when the driver of the Corsa lost control going round a roundabout, shot across the forecourt, and smashed into the side of it, shunting it into a petrol pump.

The driver of the Aston Martin, who asked not to be named, told the Swindon Advertiser: “I was filling up and then I saw the car coming towards me.

“She drove out of the petrol station onto the roundabout, lost it and came over the kerb and straight into my car. My car moved into the pump and bumped the pump off.

“My car will be a write-off. They won't fix that.”

Paramedics and police attended but neither driver was hurt in the incident. The petrol station was closed while staff worked to repair the damaged pump.

A spokesman for Wiltshire Police said: “We were called at 2.55pm to reports of two cars colliding on the forecourt of the Esso petrol station.

“One of the cars had gone into a pump. There was no fire but there was a strong smell of fumes.”
