Cedric Jordan (78), of Carrington Drive, said: “I was sat down with a drink and my wife when I heard this bang, but we didn’t realise it was an accident until we saw that the police had roped off the road.
“There were some people up by the car that crashed but the police moved them on.
“We have problems with cars being driven fast but I can’t remember anything like this happening here for a long time.
“It’s terrible and it’s just one of those things that has changed about the world.”
