Woman injured after car ploughs into Melbourne cafe

Victoria Police said the the female driver, a 63-year-old from Montmorency, “accelerated out of a car spot on Were Street before colliding with a woman with four dogs”.

“The 39-year-old female pedestrian sustained minor injuries and was transported to hospital, while the dogs were taken to a veterinary clinic as a precaution,” a spokeswoman for police said.

The 63-year-old driver stopped at the scene according to police, and was fined $397 for careless driving.

A spokeswoman for the State Emergency Service said an exclusion zone was set up around the front of the cafe to “make sure the area was safe”.

The building remains structurally safe, but SES crew members from Nillumbik stayed at the scene for nearly two hours, due to the significant damage to the shopfront.

“We attended to assist with a car-versus-building,” she said. “No occupants of the shop were injured, a council building surveyor will attend today.”
