Police said the car was found abandoned and three men were in custody in connection to the incident. 

“There was a woman and a kid, they were a bit shaken up,” Mandy Neville, who was working at a shop near the market when the incident happened, told the paper. “The woman said that she’d hurt her leg. She didn’t know if something had hit her on the leg as the car came crashing through, but no one was actually injured properly.”
