As Nevuille asks his followers on social "Can you find what year this was?"

Well when you're talking about a front bumper being found then no doubt it involved a crash.

Zooming in one the number plate Neuville's followers were quick to answer.

"It's from 2014 Thierry when 'when you hit the pole in a right turn.'

Finders keepers as they say.
