Tesco’s Saffron Walden petrol station has now re-opened following yesterday’s crash.
A spokesman for the supermarket giant confirmed the news to the Reporter this morning (Thursday).
Yesterday, a woman in her 90s was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, after her car smashed into the petrol station kiosk.
She suffered a minor head injury and was taken to hospital as a precaution. Nobody else was injured in the incident.
Firefighters sealed off the petrol station, on Radwinter Road, when they arrived at about 12.30pm. A building surveyor from Uttlesford District Council (UDC) was called to assess the damage and make sure the building was safe.

UDC’s assistant director planning & building control, Andrew Taylor, said: “One of our building surveyors from the council assessed the damage shortly after the incident and concluded that there was no significant structural damage and that the building structure is not dangerous.”
A Tesco store employee said an electrical fault had been identified but this has now been resolved. The petrol station was closed until about 11am today.
