A car has mounted a kerb, injuring a pedestrian, before crashing through a bakery window in central Levin.

Police central communications spokesman Hector Douglas said police and ambulance were called to the scene of the crash at the Oxford Bakery and Cafe, near the Camden Building in Oxford St, at 10.52am.

The pedestrian, a middle-aged woman, was treated for minor leg injuries by ambulance officers at the scene.

At Clarks Clothing next door, employee Isaac Campbell heard a bit of a bang and a shattering of glass as the crash happened.

The elderly female driver of the vehicle had hit the accelerator instead of the brake and the bonnet of her car had gone through the window, he said.

The pedestrian had been clipped by the car, and was fortunate she was not more in the path of it, Campbell said.
