A Ferrari crashed into a luxury shopfront in Sydney’s CBD this afternoon.
The accident happened at Van Cleef & Arpels, a luxury jewellery store, on the corner of Market and Castlereagh streets just after 3pm today.
It’s unclear what caused the accident but the car reportedly narrowly missed a family.
The driver was treated at the scene by paramedics.
A witness told The Sydney Morning Herald the car skidded into the window near the Market Street David Jones department store.
“I was sitting at my desk and heard a loud noise of wheels turning – I rushed to the window and saw the vehicle come around. It was a huge crash,” Grace O’Grady said.
“It was such a loud explosion – it was really terrifying. The street was so busy, there were a few hundred people around.
“His windscreen was shattered, he was totally shaken.”
She said the man hit bins which prevented further disaster, with a little boy walking along the street at the time.
“If it wasn’t for those bins, the child would have been hurt. It was just shocking – it could have been a major fatality,” she told the website.
The driver was arrested and is assisting police with their inquiries.
