A car smashed though a double-brick wall into her offices causing more than $30,000 worth of damage but Lyn McKenzie considers herself lucky.

‘‘If we’d been there we would have been killed or injured,’’ she said.

The white Toyota smashed into Action Sportsware on Nettlefold Street at about 7am.

Ms McKenzie was at home reading the paper when her landlord rang.

‘‘There is a lot of rubble so I can’t get to the equipment. Everything- partitions, filing cabinets -all got pushed back. It was like a freight train,’’ she said.

Ms Mckenzie said the $30,000 damage was a very early estimate of the damage.
