Richard Bingham - BEST Fittings
« on: June 05, 2017, 02:34:50 PM »
Just to let all know that Richard Bingham, owner of BEST Fittings had a terrible head on accident a few nights ago.
He was riding his motorbike when an oncoming car pulled across him to enter their drive way.

Richard suffered broken arms and wrists, broken leg, broken knee, broken shoulder and bruised lungs.

A close friend to me, I was horrified to hear the news but upon ringing him in hospital last night, I was amazed to hear how chipper he was. He played the whole thing down with jokes and quips; the guy really is one in a million.

They have operated on his wrists and knee but the breaks in his arms have been rated 6/6 in terms of severity.

If anybody would like to send a "Get Well Soon" card to their works premises in Gillingham, Dorset, I'm sure he and Maria, would be most moved. Currently at Bristol Hospital, he should be moving to Yeovil Hospital tomorrow.

Regards, Nic.

This is really bad news about a lovely and very genuine bloke. :(


Pleased to hear he's upbeat about the situation......is there any news on expected recovery times?

Is there any plans to prosecute the car driver?
