Car collides with Boots store in Shoreham, leaving two injured

A car has collided with a Boots store in Shoreham, leaving two people injured, according to Sussex Police.

Police said that just after 12.30pm today (November 7) emergency services were called to the High Street, Shoreham, where a white Kia car and a female pedestrian had been in collision moments before the car crashed into the front of the chemists shop.

Police said the woman, 47, had injuries including a leg injury, 'the severity of which is currently unknown'. The male driver was also hurt, but police did not know how seriously. No one else was hurt, police said.

The incident blocked the footpath but road traffic was unaffected, according to police. No structural issues were reported to the force.

An ambulance service spokesman said the female pedestrian was treated at the scene before being taken to Worthing Hospital. They could not confirm the severity of her injuries, or the injuries of the driver, but mentioned he was treated for shock.

As of around 2pm, the Boots store was closed as a result of the incident but was working to reopen today.
