On the road between Billericay and Ingatestone in Essex is the point where the River Wid flows across the road , known locally as Buttsbury Wash. Most of the time it is a mere trickle just a few inches deep , however after heavy rainfall the depths can swell to between 3 & 5 feet deep. The unfortunate driver of this 5 series BMW attempted what many before have done and came to grief also by flooding his car and writing it off.
