Not many details yet. However, a 1902 Benz was involved in a wreck along with three modern cars on the annual London to Brighton run yesterday. Reports vary, one or two seriously injured.

Drive your veterans, horseless carriages, and other antique automobiles safely out there!

Driving a pre 1905 automobile in modern traffic is going to be fraught with difficulties in any case, and that goes double for London in my book.

Sadly, the VCC GB has announced that the driver of the 1902 Benz "has died as a result of his injuries".
My deepest condolences to all his family and friends.
