"There was a flash outside and then there was a whoom, like a gas explosion.
"I went to the door and there was a man on the floor and another man looking over him shouting to me to get an ambulance," she said.
"The injured man was talking on the floor, but they were telling him to lie down and not to move because he may have broken something.
"He was bleeding from the head.
"The car was really badly damaged and the bus shelter was a complete mess."
A Dyfed-Powys Police spokeswoman said: "We always appeal for anyone with any information about a crash to come forward.
"The driver of the car is local to Llanelli.
"He suffered serious injuries but is in a stable condition in hospital.
"The vehicle collided with a garden wall and a bus shelter.
"The road was closed until about 11.30pm on Wednesday when it was re-opened and closed again at 12.30am until about 5am for further investigation."
Workmen were yesterday pulling down the remains of the ruined bus shelter in Gelli Road.
