English longbow used in modern-day attack

Sun online, from the UK, reports that a 46-year-old man was shot from behind with an arrow from a longbow in an apparently-unprovoked roadside attack.

The arrow was fired from 20 feet (6 meters) away as the man approached a stopped vehicle where a woman was blocking traffic while talking on a cell phone. Fearing another arrow, the victim removed the projectile from his own back, climbed back into his vehicle, and sped away to a hospital. Authorities say the arrow missed vital organs, and the victim is recovering at home after being released from the hospital.

Twenty feet...

Twenty feet and he couldn't hit a vital organ? Take away his ranking, then.
