Residents and local shoppers were left shocked this afternoon after a car smashed through a shop front in Crumlin.

Pictures posted by Dublin Fire Brigade (DFB) on Twitter show the Mercedes having crashed through the front of a laundrette on Windmill Road.

DFB accompanied the tweet by saying: “D'barn at a car vs shop RTC in Crumlin today. Everyone walked away, no injuries. Seat belts prevent injuries.”

The shop front was completely mangled by the car, with the vehicle mounting the path, smashing through the front doors and coming to a stop half way into the premises.
