Bricks were smashed and a window was damaged when a car ploughed into a building in the Rotorua CBD yesterday.
A police spokeswoman said police were called to Pukaki St at 9.25am.
A Rotorua Daily Post reporter at who was at the scene at the time said a car with two occupants had crashed into the front of the Family Focus building on Pukaki St damaging the front window and brick tiles.
A St John ambulance staff member was checking over car's occupants, she said.
Fire and Emergency New Zealand staff are also on the scene.
A woman inside the building said she heard an "almighty bang".
"I came out and saw the couch had moved [in the waiting room] and then I saw the damage."
She said she then saw the car behind the couch had gone through the front of the building.
"We went outside and there was a bit of smoke so someone went and got a fire extinguisher. We are just glad no one was seriously hurt."
The man driving has been taken to Rotorua Hospital as a precaution and the woman passenger was visibly upset and was being supported by emergency services.
