Two injured as car crashes through wall and hits pedestrian in Coventry after suspected drug deal

TWO MEN were injured after a car drove through a wall on Butts in Coventry.

It happened around 4.45pm on Friday when police officers spotted a suspected drug deal taking place in a car park.

As they pulled into the car park to investigate, the VW Golf drove through the wall injuring a man on the other side.

First aid was given to the pedestrian and driver before medics arrived and took over. Both men were taken to hospital.

An investigation is under way and the police’s Professional Standards Department has been informed about the incident as a police car was at the scene when the crash happened.

The road remained closed while enquiries continued.

Officers have already spoken to witnesses and identified potential CCTV and dash cam footage.

But they have also urged witnesses or anyone with information who has not yet spoken to the police to get in touch via live chat at or by calling 101.
