Injury compensation claims avoided after car crashes into club

The manager of Coppenhall Workingmen's Club in Crewe, Cheshire, should be entitled to make a compensation claim against a motorist's vehicle insurers for damage to their building after a car crashed through one of the walls on Sunday evening. However, amazingly, no personal injury claims will be necessary.

The club had staff at work and customers inside it at the time of the incident, but miraculously none of them were injured as the car came through one of the windows and smashed into an internal wall.

Furthermore, the 45-year-old driver of the car is understood to have walked away from the incident with only minor injuries.

Police have now confirmed that a local man has been arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage before being released again on bail.

Officers have sent out an appeal to any witnesses who may have seen what happened, to explain the events which led up to the car hitting the club.

One nearby resident stated, "It's amazing to think that nobody was hurt. We heard a loud crash, which must have been the car going through the wall. There was fire engines, police, ambulances. It looked like a really major accident."

Luckily the crash did not result in anyone requiring hospital treatment, so it is unlikely that club-goers or staff will attempt to make personal injury claims.

Had circumstances been different, the accident could have resulted in people being seriously injured or even killed.
