Student Crashes into UNI BOSS’ JAG during Minibus Test
A student at the University has crashed into the Vice-Chancellor’s jag causing an estimated £2,500 worth of damage.
A student at the University has crashed into the Vice-Chancellor’s jag causing an estimated £2,500 worth of damage, the Soton Tab has learned.
The incident took place during a minibus licence assessment last month. Un-official Union sources have indicated they believe the test was the student’s first time driving in the UK.
The assessment was stopped after the event occurred, within minutes of the test beginning.
The repairs needed on the minibus as a result of the incident are allegedly around £2,500. It is not known the cost of the damage to Vice-Chancellor Don Nutbeam’s Jaguar.
Any student can take a Union minibus test, provided they are over the age of 21 and have a full clean driving licence.
A University spokesperson said: ‘the Vice-Chancellor did suffer a bump to his Jaguar but it was only minimum damage. It has already been repaired. There was a scrape along his bumper and a dent in his rear near side wing.’
Mr Nutbeam also drives an eco-friendly Smart Car which he usually takes to University every day. Students have always believed the reason for this is to prevent the Vice-Chancellor from appearing too indulgent or extravagant. Perhaps he just doesn’t want to risk it around student drivers…
Do you know who was driving the minibus that crashed? Are the minibus tests at the Union too easy? Do you think the Vice-Chancellor should own a Jaguar? Please leave us your comments below.
