Felixstowe: Pedestrian injured in town centre accident as car crashes through shop window
A CAR ploughed into the front of a shop in Felixstowe town centre today after a woman was injured on a courtesy crossing.
Police sealed off Hamilton Road after the crash at the Boots Corner, the junction with Cobbold Road of the shared space scheme.
Three ambulances, a paramedic car and four police cars and a fire crew attended the incident about 12.30pm.
It is understood the woman was walking across the crossing – which looks like a zebra crossing but is known as a courtesy crossing – next to Tesco when she was hit by a car.
She was taken to Ipswich Hospital by ambulance.

One witness said: “I heard a huge bang and looked and saw this car stuck into the front of the phone shop – it was so lucky no-one else was crossing or that the school children hadn’t arrived in the town to get their lunches.”
