A British police officer is licking his wounds after balling up his Ford Galaxy patrol car. That fact alone wouldn't be terribly noteworthy, except for the spectacular manner in which he crashed. As the story goes, PC Scott Warburton was doing 91 mph in a 30 mph zone in Lancaster when he spotted a speed camera, panicked and grabbed his Galaxy's brakes in full measure, subsequently losing control and crashing. As he was not responding to official business at the time, Warburton was subsiquently convicted of "driving without due care or attention."
