The driver of a car that yesterday slammed into Hijab House in Greenacre, injuring 14 people, has been released from police custody, but could still be charged over the incident.

NSW Police said emergency services were called to Boronia Road, in Western Sydney, at 3:15pm on Thursday after reports of a car crash.

A Mitsubishi SUV crashed into a vehicle stopped at traffic lights before careering into the clothing shop.

The driver was trapped in the car and had to be freed, while 14 people — mainly women — were injured in the incident.

The 51-year-old driver was questioned by detectives at Bankstown Police Station after undergoing mandatory drug and alcohol testing but was allowed to return home last night.

However, investigators admitted they were in the early stages of gathering evidence and did not rule out the possibility of charges.
