This is the shocking moment a car sped through a T-junction and smashed into a building - leaving two men in hospital. Dashcam footage shows the vehicle colliding with Charles Wilson Auto Engineers in Manchester at just after midnight on October 19.

It's thought two people were in the car, which crashed on Wilmslow Road in the Rusholme area. Emergency services confirmed that a man from the building was taken to hospital to receive further treatment. The driver - a man in his 20s - took himself to hospital.

Rinzi Phoya, 50, who captured the incident on his dashcam, said: "I was on Wilmslow about to turn into Dickenson - they were coming from Dickenson. They sped through the traffic lights and went right into the building, going pretty fast.

"One of them was walking okay and the other was bleeding. The passenger got out but the driver had to crawl out as their side was pretty smashed in. The front of the dealership is all glass."

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said: “At just after midnight on Thursday morning (October 19) five fire engines from Withington, Gorton, Manchester Central, and Whitehill fire stations, along with the technical response unit from Ashton fire station were called to a road traffic collision involving two cars and a commercial building on Wilmslow Road, Rusholme.

“Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used two hose reels to extinguish a fire involving one of the vehicles and worked to make the scene safe. Crews were in attendance for an hour and a half.”

Greater Manchester Police said a person inside the building was treated for minor injuries and the building will be assessed by the council. The male car driver - aged in their 20s - also needed hospital treatment but made his own way there, the force added.

North West Ambulance Service said one man from the building was taken to hospital to receive further treatment. Charles Wilson Auto Engineers did not answer the phone.
