A review into road safety has been called for after a car careered into a corner shop at the bend in Wigan Road.
The car came off the road and hit the Premier convenience store this week, making it the latest incident in this location.
Westhoughton town councillor David Wilkinson has asked Bolton Council to review road safety measures. He said: “This isn’t the first time we’ve had an incident in this location so I think we need to look at the area to see if anything can be done to warn drivers to approach the bend more carefully.
“It terrifying to think that a lot of children go in and out of the Premier store and the footpath along there is well used. We were lucky this time that no pedestrians were injured but things could have been a lot, lot worse.”
A council spokesman has told us: “Once we have the police accident report we can review to look at causation factors. Driver error is quite often the issue in these circumstances but that will be part of the information that the police should provide.”
