Another lady was also caught up in the collision who needed treatment.

A spokesperson for Gosport Fire Station, who attended the scene and treated the females, said: ‘The woman was in shock and needed emergency medical care. Another lady had to be treated, though she was in a less serious state.

‘The stolen car crashed into the female drivers before making off and dumping the car.

‘It was lucky no one was killed, it could easily have been a fatal accident especially at the time of day with it very busy and lots of children about after school.’
