An 18-year-old man has been charged after a car mounted a pavement, injured a woman pedestrian and hit a city centre cafe.
The woman was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary after the incident on Union Terrace outside Kirk View Cafe. The cafe’s window was also shattered.
A police spokeswoman said that an 18-year-old man has been charged in connection with the incident, which happened at about 12.10pm yesterday.

Owner Rob Milne said he was in the bar area at the time preparing a cocktail for a customer when he heard a loud “boom”.
