Trip to buy mangoes ends in disaster after encountering learner driver in Seven Kings
A driving instructor whose pupil was involved in a collision this morning said he had “never seen anything like it” in his 37 years as an instructor.
His 19-year-old female learner driver, who has been taking lessons for about a year, left the scene in a state of shock.
Raymon Hart, 60, of Chadwell Heath, said: “The car dragged us across the road, she’s just in shock.”
Mr Hart has spent almost four decades teaching people to drive and has been involved with all manner of incidents but said nothing compared to this.
“I’ve had some bumps before but I’ve not seen anything like this,” he said. “I could always drive the car away afterwards that’s for sure.”
