Why Eileen's new car will end up in carnage

Eileen's win of a car in a competition she can't remembering entering sent a shiver of anticipation along our sofa last night.  Because, when you give a woman a set of wheels in Weatherfield then disaster must follow - for it is the Corrie way.

Remember when Karen McDonald won a car for the Barlows on TV gameshow, Top of the Tree. That car ended up on fire and Tracy assumed that Karen had killed Amy, who had been in the car at the time.

Watch the Barlows win the car on the gameshow, here:


And what about Vera Duckworth?  She was driving a "cut and shut" car that had been put together by son Terry. Vera bumped the car into Judy Mallett, which ultimately resulted in Judy's death after the crash caused an embolism in Judy's leg.

And when Claire Peacock ended up behind the wheel of the Weatherfield Wayfarer she knocked over  Chesney's dog Schmeichel on her first day.

Are there any more examples of women behind the wheel ending in tragedy?  I wonder what lies ahead for Eileen!
