West bound on the A31 towards Lyndhurst at Stoney cross? No wonder he crashed. Must have been so confused.

It's a miracle they didn't hit the oncoming traffic if they were travelling on the west bound carriageway towards Lyndhurst. Oh, Echo reporters, get your facts straight!

Gosh someone seems to think they know a lot about the occupants of the car.
Not white, drunk, drug addicts and car thieves.
I hope you're not a politician, magistrate, or work for the 'caring' agencies.

Now, please give details of the deer, I mean it was pretty careless wasn't it?
Didn't stop before crossing, unlikely to be white, probably eating magic mushrooms before the incident AND didn't speak English. 'Tut'
