A taxi has plowed into a supermarket in Nabua after failing to stop.

5 people were injured while 1 has been transported by ambulance to the CWM Hospital.

Semisi Lomani who was one of the 5 injured says he was on his way out when he saw 2 taxis racing for the same parking spot.

Lomani says the taxi that bumped him didn't stop and hit the counter pushing everything ahead of it.

He says he pulled one of the ladies away from the front of the vehicle but they all were swept up by the counter that the taxi had bumped.

All the 4 injured have been taken to the CWM Hospital.

The taxi driver was overheard saying that when he pressed his brakes his vehicle didn't stop but just sped up.

The 38-year-old driver will be questioned soon.

Police are currently at the scene as investigations continue.
