Road traffic incident in Brownhills High Street last night?

Apparently, there was a road traffic incident in Brownhills High Street last night (5th Novvember 2011) at around 9pm. Most of the details I have are due to social media – Twatter and Facebook are invaluable at times like this. I noticed a few enquires as to why the High Street was blocked and police were present, so I asked on Facebook, which over the course of an hour or so developed useful replies – and a really funny one, too. I think all contributors are Brownhills Blog readers.

Facebook thread from the hours after the incident took place.

Later the same evening, tweeting local copper PC Liam Marshall posted the following:

If anyone has any further information, please do drop me a line – BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com – or comment here. Thankfully, it doesn’t sound like anyone was seriously injured, and after a day of carnage on the roads one must be thankful for small mercies.

Incidentally, it was nice to notice tonight how many people were commenting on twitter just how good the fireworks and bonfire were in Brownhills. Looks  like a good time was had by all.
