Car slams into Southport Park shop

An out of control car has smashed into a vacant shop at Southport Park.

Emergency crews were called to the usually busy shopping centre, on the corner of Ferry and Benowa Roads, around 7:50am on Saturday.

They found the male driver with just minor injuries.


Luckily no one else was injured as a majority of the shops had not yet opened for the day.

The man has been taken to Gold Coast University Hospital for treatment.

He is also expected to have a blood alcohol reading amid suggestions he may have been drink driving at the time.
