thread I thought there had been an explosion nearby
There was a van with a massive hole in its side, it'd been stoved in. There was damage to the garden and house too, and it was to such an extent that i thought it must have been an explosion.

I just googled and a car had hit it, and there had been a chap on a mobility scooter on the pavement :(
