Elderly motorist drives wrong way round roundabout

In a nerve-wracking video, the confused OAP is seen driving a red Citroen Berlingo on a roundabout close to the M5 against oncoming traffic. The pensioner, believed to be aged between 80 and 90 years old, was driving near Junction 23, where the road meets the A39 at Bridgwater, Somerset. Tragedy was narrowly avoided by a quick-thinking teenager, who put his own life at risk to stop the geriatric, who ignored beeping horns trying to get his attention. Stephen Howe,18, who passed his driving test less than a year ago, captured the footage on his dash-cam.
