One of Preston's busiest roads was blocked when a car smashed into a chemist this afternoon.
The driver of a silver car had crashed through the glass front of the shop at around 11:50am.
Paramedics are understood to have attended to an older woman driver at the scene in New Hall Lane after the collision between the car and a taxi.
Preston police shut the road to motorists at the junction with Acregate Lane following the crash.
It caused traffic problems in the area but was opened a short time later.
No one is thought to be seriously injured.
A traffic light, recently installed in the road, was flattened in the incident.
