South Wales Argus: James Bond supercar crashes at Cwmbran roundabout James Bond supercar crashes at Cwmbran roundabout

THE driver of a James Bond sports car costing up to £190,000 came a cropper in Cwmbran on Saturday morning when his silver Aston Martin Vanquish crashed at the Croesyceiliog roundabout.

A spokeswoman for Gwent Police confirmed they attended the single vehicle incident at 10.35am where a male driver was not injured but his car sustained damage.

The six-litre V12 engined car, made famous in the James Bond film Die Another Day, can cost between £60,000 and £190,000 depending on age.

Onlookers took to Twitter within an hour of the crash. User @Jsnmb4 said: "Our thoughts are with the man who went through the barriers on the Croesy roundabout near Cwmbran in his Vanquish. He looked grumpy", while @iwlew12 tweeted: "Just witnessed someone crash their Aston Martin [on] a roundabout in Cwmbran #unluckymate".

Why do news outlets put so much energy into informing people about what someone decided to put on Twitter? I put status updates on Facebook about mundane details of my life and only a few people really show any interest and I can see that in the grand scheme of things only those close to you would.

As soon as something as boring as a bloke stacking his car into something happens then Twitter is the primary source of information when all it is is a bunch of people with an opinion that may or may not carry any form of truth behind it.

As it stands, a man who happened to own an expensive car crashed it earlier and the same model happened to be in a James Bond film. Top-notch journalism by the Argus from Twitter users opinions because they have little information.
