The scene of the accident

A MOTORIST created chaos after crashing into a lamppost on a busy Wigan road.

And the collision on Highfield Grange in Marus Bridge caused the glass bus shelter, which was next to the street lighting, to shatter.

Police and ambulance crews were called to the scene at around 2.10pm on Wednesday afternoon.

A woman in her 40s, who was driving a black Renault Laguna, was treated for minor injuries by paramedics but wasn’t taken to 
hospital.

There were no other reported injuries.

Shattered glass from the bus stop was cleared up shortly afterwards.

Traffic also resumed as usual almost immediately after.
