A car crashed into the window of an Upton takeaway on Saturday (February 15).

The collision occurred at Rooster on Weston Grove at about 4.28pm.

Two casualties were treated by paramedics but it is not thought anybody sustained any serious injuries.

Police have cordoned off the pavement outside the shop but have yet to reveal how the accident happened.

An eyewitness has contacted The Chronicle to say they saw one man being stretchered away from the scene.

The witness said it was thought the car was accidentally put into gear after parking outside the shop and the vehicle lunged across the pedestrian pavement a through the glass front windows and into the shop.

“Roosters was open at the time. It is not clear if anyone was seated in the dining area at the front of the takeaway but staff appeared visibly shaken at the scene,” the witness, who did not wish to be named, added.

“Two fire engines, one ambulance car, two ambulances and over six police vehicles attended the scene and Weston Grove was closed whilst the vehicle was removed.”

Roosters is a relatively new business in the Weston Grove parade of shops, having opened in the latter part of 2013. Despite the damage, it is not thought there is any structural damage to the property.
