Mr Bowen said neither the driver nor anyone in his office was hurt in the crash on Tuesday afternoon
A New South Wales Police media spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia the driver was taken to Fairfield Hospital, where she was assessed for shock.
A photo taken at the scene and shared by Mr Bowen on his Twitter page showed a window bearing his face had been crushed and detached from the wall.
Mr Bowen wrote alongside the photo the crash had been caused by a ‘local resident’ who ‘had some difficulty parking’.

‘She has been taken away by ambulance but is doing OK,’ he said.
‘Luckily, there was no-one in our office waiting room at the time.
‘All my staff are OK. It will be a while before we are able to get back in the office, so please understand why we aren’t answering the office phones or emails just at the moment.’
