Town councillor Tim Haines said: "I was very concerned.

"I didn't see the crash, but I saw an elderly woman sitting on a chair by the pavement being comforted.

"I was concerned because the front of a car was smashed up and the window had been smashed."

A spokesperson for Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said: "Crews from Evesham and Broadway Fire Stations attended the High Street with supporting appliances not required.

"A car had hit a restaurant with two other vehicles involved.

“The vehicles were made safe and the incident was left with the police by the final crew at 1.49pm.”

A spokesperson for West Midlands Ambulance Service said a man and a woman were taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

They said: "We were called at around 12.40pm to reports of an RTC on High Street in Evesham.

"Three ambulances and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene where, on arrival, crews found one car had come off the road and crashed into a building.

"The driver, a man, and a female passenger were treated for injuries not believed to be serious by ambulance staff and were both conveyed to Worcestershire Royal Hospital for further treatment."
