A pub’s front entrance has been left destroyed after a car crashed into it, before hitting a pedestrian.
Police officers were called to Nelson Road Central in Great Yarmouth on Tuesday at 9.40pm after a black Toyota Celica crashed into the front of The Albion pub, rolling onto its side and hitting a pedestrian.
Paramedics and firefighters attended, and both the pedestrian and driver of the car were taken to James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston for treatment for minor injuries.
A spokesman for Norfolk Constabulary said the pedestrian was “very lucky” to escape without serious injury.
As of Wednesday morning, both men remained in hospital.
The car was recovered at around 3am this morning and the fire service worked to make the building safe.
