High Street in Lowestoft has been cordoned off after a car ploughed into a shop front.
Police were called to the area at 2.25pm after a report of a road traffic collision on the busy stretch.
A witness at the scene said the blue car was pushed into Langwrights independent estate agents after a silver vehicle collided with it.
According to Stan Wright and Peter Langford, the owners of Langwrights, a woman driving the blue car was reverse parking on the left-hand side of the road before the silver car 'smashed' into her.
'We heard a bit of a squeal and then a bump, then a bit more of a squeal before the car ended up in our shop.' the business owners said.
Six cars were involved in the crash, including four Ford Fiestas, a Dacia Sandero and a Ford Focus.
