Car crashes into pharmacy at Northpoint shopping centre

SHOPPERS at Northpoint Shopping Centre were given an unusual sight when a car rammed through the glass doors of a retail outlet yesterday afternoon.

Emergency services were called to the Ruthven St complex about 1pm with reports a car had become embedded in the front door and window of Priceline Pharmacy.

A Toyota Camry had run through a concrete parking block before running into and knocking over a steel bollard.

The bollard was wedged under the front driver side tyre of the vehicle which rested beside the smashed remains of a glass door.
