A driver thankfully escaped serious injury when a car crashed through the gates and front doors of the Quaker Meeting house in Bournville this afternoon (Thursday 18th October).
Somehow, the VW Polo crashed through the front gate on Linden Road and up the path before smashing through the doors in the the Meeting House itself, coming to rest in the middle of the room.
West Midlands Fire Service tweeted that two fire engines, with ten firefighters, attended.

Amazingly, the driver of this car wasn’t badly hurt when it crashed through a set of gates and doors at a Quaker building in Bournville. Two fire engines and 10 firefighters responded. It’s thought the driver’s foot slipped and she pressed the accelerator instead of the brake. pic.twitter.com/xCePIAnHtV
