PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — An SUV crashed into a weight loss and aesthetic medical business west of Boca Raton closed for the weekend, damaging the waiting room.
At 4:35 p.m. Saturday, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue was dispatched to a vehicle accident at the 8200 block of Glades Road, west of Florida Turnpike, according to an email in an inquiry from WPTV.
Both individuals in the vehicle declined transport.
The business owner, Dr. Jonathan M. Fields, told WPTV an 80-year-old woman drove the SUV with a man.
Field's business is CR8 Health at 8234 Glades Road.
"Luckily the business was closed and nobody was injured, but it destroyed the lobby and was quite a scare for the owners and everyone passing by that saw it," Fields, who owns the business with his brother Dr. Nadav D. Fields, told WPTV.
"But during business hours it could have easily been fatal as that area is usually full of people."
Fields said he found out about the crash quickly.
"We have a security camera," he told WPTV. "We had the place cleaned earlier in the day and received a notification from the alarm system. Why is the cleaning lady going back?"
The video showed a man inside the building who had been involved in the crash.
He estimated the damage was in the "tens of thousands of dollars."
The business has been in the shopping plaza for a year and a half.
