Car ploughs into Whangarei cheesecake shop

A woman and a young girl have been taken to hospital after a car crashed into a Northland shop.

Two ambulances were dispatched to The Cheesecake Shop, in Whangarei this morning after a car crashed into the building.

A 39-year-old woman was seriously injured, and a five-year-old girl was moderately hurt, with ambulances taking them both to Northland Base Hospital.

The shop's owner, Jenny Gu believes it was an accident.

"It was an older couple, they were driving the car and they tried to reverse and I think maybe they just pushed the wrong button," says Ms Gu.

A number of other people at the scene also sustained minor injuries.
