Caption Competition

We had an unexpected visitor at Church yesterday.

A local man drove his car from the nearby traffic lights into the wall of the church. Fortunately no one was injured. It was a minor accident, but for some reason it was miscategorised by the police and ambulance services and we had four police cars and two ambulances arrive, while the driver and passers by looked slightly bemused.


Here is a photo of the car and the church.






And here is a little competition.

Can you think of an amusing caption for the photo?

(Have a look at the suggestions so far – in the comments – and add yours, thanks)
