THE MORRISONS petrol station in Bromsgrove which saw its shop struck by a car yesterday has now reopened.

Currently, the staff in the shop can only take cash for fuel and those wanting to use cards will need to pay at pump.

In yesterday’s incident, a driver and a pedestrian had a lucky escape when a grey Ford Mondeo drove into the shop just before 1pm.

A woman in her 70s who was in the car suffered only minor facial injuries after the airbag went off in the car.

She and a pedestrian, who was also involved in the incident, was examined by paramedics at the scene but did not need hospital treatment.

A crew from Bromsgrove Fire Station isolated the electrics in the building and, after the car was pulled out, it was made safe.

A spokesperson for Hereford and Worcester Fire Service said: “It was lucky the car went into the shop and not the petrol pumps.

“Because the car entered close to the door, it was also fortunate no one was seriously injured.

“It was a very lucky escape by everyone involved.”

The petrol station was closed on Wednesday but reopened at 1pm yesterday (Thursday).

A spokesperson for the supermarket said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused to our customers.”
