Sign damaged in crash

A LORRY driver damaged a “Give way” sign in Peppard when his vehicle hit it.

A LORRY driver damaged a “Give way” sign in Peppard when his vehicle hit it.

The collision happened as the driver of the haulage company lorry tried to turn into the car park at the junction of Gallowstree Road and Stoke Row Road.

The grass verge was also damaged by the lorry’s wheels. Peppard Parish Council chairman Barry Wood was notified of the incident on Tuesday last week by John Miles, a neighbour in Stoke Row Road and managing director of Wilkins removals in Henley.

Councillor Wood sent an email to the company, A Ebner Inernationale Transporte. He said: “The lorry was coming up from Peppard Hill when it tried to turn left into the car park and took out the sign.



“I’ve been on to the managing director of A Ebner and they will put this through as an insurance claim.”

Johann Reissinger, managing director of A Ebner, said the driver had made a delivery and was trying to turn round when the accident happened.

“He spoke to an elderly couple who told him that they would inform the approriate people. I informed our insurance department and everything will be paid by our insurance.

“I apologise on behalf of our company and our driver.”
