A man has been charged with mid-range drink driving after crashing a Ferrari into a shopfront in Sydney's CBD this afternoon.
Police were called to the corner of Market and Castlereagh Street in Sydney's CBD after the red sports car mounted the gutter and crashed into the Ole Lynnggaard Copenhagen jewellery boutique just before 3.30pm today.
A witness said the high-performance car appeared to be followed by a NSW Police Highway Patrol officer leading up to the crash.
The 41-year-old driver returned a positive roadside test and was taken to Day Street Police Station where he allegedly returned a breath analysis of 0.107.
He was charged with mid-range PCA, drive whilst suspended and drive in a manner dangerous.
A 60-year-old woman was taken to St Vincents Hospital with hip injuries after tripping to get out of the car's way.
A female passenger in the car was not injured.
There were minor traffic delays along Elizabeth and Market Street earlier this afternoon while the car was towed.
All lanes have since reopened.
