Car crashes into doctor's surgery in Stockport

Passengers in a car escaped unharmed after the vehicle they were driving crashed through a window into a doctor's surgery.

The incident, which occurred at Bramhall Medical Centre in Stockport, saw the vehicle come to rest into a surgical examination room, narrowly missing the main entrance door.

Witnesses believed that the driver mistook the accelerator for the brake and the hatchback careered into the building at speed.

No patients or staff were hurt, while two people in the car also escaped injury.

North West Ambulance Service announced that two people were in the car at the time and a further two were assessed at the scene.

One woman was taken to Stepping Hill Hospital after concerns over her blood pressure.

It is understood the others were treated for shock.

The car, which was traveling at speed, had been almost lifted into the air by the force of the collision but came to rest with its boot open.

One eye-witness said: “I heard a monumental bang. I have never seen anything like it before.

“There were lots of medics in the road diverting traffic.”

A spokesman for the North West Ambulance Service said a rapid response vehicle and a hazardous area response team were sent to the clinic following multiple 999 calls.

She said: “One patient, a female, was taken to Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport. Medical staff from the centre helped in the assessment process.”

NHS Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group was unavailable for comment.
