Paramedics say three people have had a lucky escape after a car careered into the kiosk at a petrol station in Cannock.

The incident at the Tesco Filling Station on Heath Way at around 2.50pm took out a window and knocked over shelves.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a green Jaguar car that had collided with the front of the petrol station kiosk.  One of the large windows had been shattered and a number of shelves had been knocked over.

“The driver of the car, a 71 year old man was unhurt though shaken by the events.  After assessment, he was discharged at the scene.

“Two people who were in the kiosk at the time of the incident were also assessed by ambulance staff.  A 46 year old man had leg pain after one of the shelves struck him as the car came through the window.  After assessment, he was discharged on scene.

“A 61 year old woman who was also shaken by the events but she too was discharged by ambulance staff.

“Clearly, this had the potential to be a much worse incident and it is fortunate that no-one was hurt.”
