A car crashed through the glass front of a Co-op store yesterday, leaving a woman injured.

Bassett Avenue, Bicester, was closed both ways after the accident at the shop there, which happened at about 11.45am.

The woman in the Co-op was taken to Horton General Hospital in Banbury, and treated for facial and foot injuries caused by debris in the crash, police said.

The driver, a woman in her 70s, was treated by paramedics for shock at the scene.

Passerby Dave Prosser, 32, of Launton Road, Bicester, said: “I couldn’t believe it when I came around the corner. It just smashed straight through the front of the shop. It’s shocking.”

Shopper Pat Andrews, 64, of Buckingham Road, Bicester, said: “It’s an awful mess inside. There was stuff scattered everywhere. I hope the driver turns out to be all right.”

Customers were turned away from the shop after the crash and told it would hopefully be open again today.

The car was removed by police at about 1.30pm and the road reopened.

Thames Valley Police spokeswoman Hannah Williams said nobody had been reported for driving offences over the crash.
