A blind man has been banned from driving - after crashing on his first attempt. The 42-year-old, from Lanarkshire near Glasgow, made it less than a mile before crashing the car - and narrowly missing a pedestrian.

So how could he ever have been allowed to drive? And does this make it to the list of oddest things to have happened on the road?
