Ronnie Pickering drinks pint in beer garden after car almost smashes into pub

Viral YouTube sensation Ronnie Pickering has been snapped calmly sipping a pint after he was almost involved in a car crash in his native Hull.

The ranting would-be hardman whose road rage incident went viral in 2015 arrived at the pub after a car had crashed through a beer garden on Friday afternoon.

It is believed that an elderly woman lost control of her blue Toyota Yaris before smashing through the garden of The Saltshouse pub on Dungevan Road in the east of the city.

Ronnie, who avoided jail after battering a suspected drug dealer three years ago, was pictured sitting on one of the smashed up tables next to the car enjoying an afternoon pint.

Pictures showed the vehicle had crashed through a white fence before hitting a wooden table outside the pub, narrowly avoiding the building itself.

He said: "I was only coming to the Salthouse Tavern for a bite to eat and was a bit surprised to see this.

"It looks like the car must have took off and ploughed nose-first into the area where people sit.

"Luckily, no one was sitting outside or who knows what would have happened. It wouldn't have been good."
