A CAR ended up with one of its front wheels on top of another car after a freak crash in Deane.

It is understood a woman in her fifties was turning her black Kia Sportage into Willows Lane from Church Avenue around 12.30pm today, when a BMW clipped her vehicle.

In a panic she swerved to avoid a further collision - and her car mounted a parked Toyota on the corner outside Food N Wine newsagents, smashing the window and door.

Firefighters were called to the scene after reports that she was trapped inside, but she had been freed by the time they arrived.

Food N Wine shop assistant Mohammad Nadi, aged 23, helped get the lady out of her car.

He said: "I didn't see the crash, I was working in the shop when I heard a loud bang.

"The woman was really shocked and couldn't move. I took in her my arms and got her out of the car.

"I brought her into the shop and gave her a glass of water. She waited for 10 or 15 minutes and spoke with her husband."

Paramedics were called but the driver was not seriously injured and did not got to hospital.

Khurram Ali, the owner of the Toyota, said he was upset to see what had happened to his car.

The Church Avenue resident told The Bolton News: "I was very shocked,

"I woke up at 3pm because I was working last night, and when I came to see my car I thought I had forgotten where I had parked it, because it was not there any more.

"The men in the newsagent told me what happened.

"I don't know where my car is now."

Police are not taking any further action over the accident after the drivers of the Kia and BMW swapped insurance details.
