Caught on CCTV – Asda delivery driver ramming parked car in the West Midlands

Delivery driver caught out by CCTV cameras smashing a parked car out of the way

An Asda store in Oldbury, in the West Midlands, has had to apologise after CCTV security cameras caught one of their delivery driver’s ramming a parked car out of the way before driving off.

The incident happened in December last year in Oldbury, West Midlands. The Asda van can be seen in the CCTV footage pulling alongside a parked up Renault Megane. The driver then reverses and bumps the car out of the way before driving off.

Asda have since apologised for the “unacceptable incident” and have made sure that the car was repaired before being returned to its owner.

The owner of the Renault Megane, Mr Ian Peacock, was in the area visiting family on December 20 last year, when he heard outside a “loud bang and a car alarm going off”.

At first, Mr Peacock didn’t realise that it was his vehicle that had been run into.

The incident caused damage to Mr Peacock’s Renault; the bumper support bar was snapped in half, some of the lights were smashed and snapped, plus the casing holding the exhaust and other car parts underneath the vehicle was smashed.

Mr Peacock spoke after the incident to numerous news outlets, saying that he’d received a call from Asda’s head office, who said they would be sending him a “goodwill gesture” but Mr Peacock added that nothing had arrived up to now from one of the UK’s leading supermarket chains.
