When Gerald Germbottom drove his car on the A303 near Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England little did he know that he would be involved in a bizarre road traffic accident. You see, Gerald had a secret that he didn't want the police to know.
He had lost his right eye during the war and was fitted with a glass eye that made him look somewhat normal. As he passed the ancient monument, his good eye was focussed on the impressive stone circle which he had not seen before. Something else he had not seen before was the oncoming Mercedes Benz.
Too late... Gerald's car had veered into the path of the other vehicle and the collision was inevitable. Unfortunately the other driver was thrown through the windscreen and killed outright. Gerald on the other hand was dazed, but otherwise unhurt and managed to get out of his damaged car.
He was a bit frightened that he would be caught driving with a false eye. Then an idea struck him right between the eyes! He took out his trusty penknife and went over to the other motorist lying on the floor dead. Callous as it may seem, Gerald cut the right eye out of the man and swapped it for the glass replica.
Gerald just had time before the police arrived. Was he one greatly relieved fellow! The traffic cop took the details of the accident.
"Seems like he veered into your path." said the P.C. "of course, there'll have to be an autopsy to see if he 'ad an 'art attack!"
"OK" said Gerald, trying hard to hide his guilt.
2 days later, the phone rang and the policeman on the other end said excitedly
"Hello,is that Mr Germbottom? yes well I have some good news for yer Sir, the other driver was completely at fault - we're amazed he got as far as he did yer know.... he drove 50 miles from Basingstoke with 2 GLASS EYES!"
