Win­dow smashed as car drove into shop

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A SHOP was da­m­aged when a car drove into it on Christ­mas Eve morn­ing.

Po­lice were called to the Spar, on Brock­le­hurst Way, Tyther­ing­ton, shortly be­fore 7.30am.

It is be­lieved a woman in a Land Rover lost con­trol and knocked over a metal bol­lard be­fore crash­ing into the win­dow.

The driver, in her 70s, was not se­ri­ously in­jured, and staff in the shop were un­harmed.

A Spar spokesman said: “It was just an ac­ci­dent, we re­mained open as nor­mal. The area was cor­doned off and if cus­tomers wanted any­thing from it we were able to go in and get it.”

The badly da­m­aged win­dow was fixed later the same day.

A Cheshire Po­lice spokesman said: “There was a one-ve­hi­cle col­li­sion, it went through a metal bol­lard and into the front of the shop.

“Sig­nif­i­cant dam­age was caused to the win­dow. Staff in­side were ok and the driver was in shock but with no vis­i­ble in­juries.”

The pre­vi­ous day a woman suf­fered mi­nor in­juries and was cut from her Toy­ota Yaris fol­low­ing a crash with a Ford Fo­cus on Bo­nis Hall Lane, Prest­bury, at 4.35pm
