A car has been pictured inside a Next store after smashing through glass doors and windows.
The incident took place at a store in Tresliske Retail Park, Truro, Cornwall, this afternoon.
Pictures show the car inside the store – with debris and glass surrounding it. The retail outlet was immediately evacuated following the incident which happened at around 3.55pm.
Eyewitnesses have said that police, ambulance and fire crews were all sent to the scene. The driver of the vehicle has been treated by paramedics.
One eyewitness told CornwallLive: “I’m not sure quite how it unfolded but the shop was immediately evacuated by staff and an ambulance and fire engine were on scene within minutes. No injuries to the best of my knowledge but paramedics were tending to the driver, everyone else seemed to just be in shock out the front of the store. As you can see from the picture the car has ended up quite far into the shop.”
According to reports, the driver, a woman, was checked over by paramedics after her car plunged 10 feet into the store.
Devon and Cornwall Police attended the incident along with Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service who have now made the scene safe.
A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: “Police were called at 3.55pm today, 13 September, after a vehicle was in collision with a Truro store. The vehicle went through the glass frontage and ended up around 10ft inside the Next store at Treliske Retail Park.
“No-one inside the vehicle or the shop was injured. The female driver was checked over by ambulance. The fire service also attended and the area has been made safe. The store sustained damage to its glass doors.”
