Seriously... A pensioner got stuck under a car, 2 fire crews, Ambulance, Medics, Air ambulance who by the way, made an amazing landing on a small strip of grass near the patient on the next road, Police officers, and YOU 'Speedysnail' are concerned over a small error on the report, does it throw you off the story, because the writer put 'could' instead of 'got', does your mind tell you the story has all of a sudden changed to, a man fell off a ladder and fell into a pond!!, get over it an take up knitting or something, I hope the man pulls through and makes makes a speedy recovery, it must have been very distressing for family and neighbours to witness what went on with the gentleman.

Oooh Pembury gets a minus 7 and I was thinking the same thing. Why get under a car for any reason other than Rachel Riley was hiding there?
