Or perhaps it wasn’t...

Crash driver 'swerved to avoid octopus' http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-devon-47144891

The Twitter comments quoted are excellent- though I expect ukc can do better...

He'll be up before the beak in no time - a sucker for punishment

I think he was right to swerve, it could have ended like this:

More likely swerved to avoid an Octopus salesperson who litter every high street

I'd really like the driver to be found innocent of being under the influence of drink and drugs, so that it becomes 'One of those mysteries' which the police sometimes have to deal with.

One of the many hazards of scuba-driving on a tropical reefer.

So the animal just disappeared ... it's now an octagone.

Octopus, nah, sounds more like someone has shaved the hairy hand! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hairy_Hands

"In one incident, in 1924, a woman camping on the moor with her husband reported seeing a hairy hand attempting to gain access to her caravan during the night"

Euphemism much?

Further news, he has been released while the police investigate, and an octopus - but perhaps not 'the octopus' has been spotted at the crash site.  

I do hope he's found not to have had drink or drugs in his blood stream...
