Car crashes through store window at petrol station in Secunda



petrol station in Secunda

The peace during a Sunday morning at a petrol station in Secunda abruptly shifted to chaos when a car crashed through its convenience store window.

According to The Citizen, the incident occurred in the early hours of Sunday morning, with reports indicating that the female driver lost control of her car. Prompt response from the police and emergency services personnel ensured no severe injuries.

Unfortunately, vehicle crashes into stores have become a recurring theme in South Africa. For example, in February, a Porsche driver drove through the window of the Lynwood coffee shop, JulieBean. Thankfully, the owners, Julie and Riaan Venter, emphasised that no casualties occurred, although the incident necessitated a temporary closure of their establishment.

In December of the previous year, four store workers at the convenience store in an Engen petrol station outside the Pavilion Shopping Centre in Westville suffered injuries when a Hyundai drove through the main window. Paramedics quickly arrived at the scene to provide medical assistance.


Similarly, in January, a woman accidentally drove her car through a Col’Cacchio pizza restaurant at the New Salt Rock shopping centre on the north coast of KwaZulu-Natal. Fortunately, while the driver sustained moderate injuries, no other individuals were harmed, narrowly avoiding potential harm to patrons sitting at the restaurant’s tables.
