taken from a recent news story:

Pensioner killed after swerving his car into a tree when a mattress fell onto the road ahead of him

The 69-year-old died at the scene when his car left the carriageway in Kent and smashed into trees

A PENSIONER was tragically killed yesterday when his vehicle crashed into trees after he swerved to avoid a mattress which fell from the car in front.

The 69-year-old died at the scene when his Peugeot 206 left the road and ploughed into trees. The crash happened on Blue Bell Hill on the A229 when a mattress fell of a vehicle and a motorist travelling behind smashed into a tree trying to avoid it

The mattress had reportedly come off the roof of a Peugeot 2008 car driving ahead.

The horror crash happened at around 4.35pm on the A229 at Blue Bell Hill near Rochester, Kent.

The victim, from Chatham, Kent, has not yet been identified.

A Kent Police spokesman said: “Officers investigating a fatal collision on the A229 Blue Bell Hill are appealing for witnesses.

“A 69-year-old man from Chatham was pronounced dead at the scene when the silver Peugeot 206 he was driving left the Maidstone-bound carriageway and collided with trees before rebounding back across the road.

“A mattress was in the carriageway at the time of the collision, having fallen from the roof of a red Peugeot 2008.”

Mr P. O'Sullivan - Whetstone

I have been a regular customer of Vic Smith Beds for about 20 years. Apart from the personal, personable and extremely helpful advice from a well known and trusted local trader, the quality of his products is exceptional and could not be bettered either in price or terrific range of choice. I could not recommend Vic Smith Beds more highly.
