EMERGENCY services rushed to a busy road after a car veered into a building.

Paramedics and police were called around 6pm on Bank Holiday Monday to Duckworth Street in Darwen.

A silver Vauxhall Astra crashed into Brookside Beauty Salon and the driver, a woman, suffered a head injury.

Officers diverted traffic while the woman was dealt with and a clean-up operation took place.

A witness said: "I drove by and the car looked like it had smashed into the beauty salon, there were a lot of police there.

"I went by again this morning and there is some damage to the building."
