"Some people helped her out of the vehicle because there was smoke coming out of it. There was also what looked like water, but I think it turned out to be radiator fluid.

"It's lucky the crash barrier was there or she would have driven straight into the pharmacy."

Police and fire crews joined paramedics at the scene at about 10.30am.

The driver was treated in the back of an ambulance.
