On Saturday afternoon, an SUV crashed into a weight loss and aesthetic medical business located west of Boca Raton. The accident happened at 4:35 p.m. on Glades Road, just west of the Florida Turnpike. According to an email from WPTV, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue arrived at the scene and found that both individuals in the vehicle had declined transport.
Dr. Jonathan M. Fields, the owner of CR8 Health, told WPTV that an 80-year-old woman was driving the SUV with a man when it crashed into the building. Fortunately, nobody was injured in the incident, but the lobby was severely damaged. Fields stated that it was a “quite a scare” for everyone involved, including those passing by who witnessed the accident.
During business hours, the area where the crash occurred could have been fatal as it is usually full of people. However, thanks to security camera footage, it was discovered that there was a cleaning lady who received an alarm notification about the crash. The surveillance image showed a man inside the building who had been involved in the accident.
Despite causing massive damage to the building, CR8 Health has been operating in its shopping plaza location for over a year and a half. Dr. Fields estimated that the damage caused by the crash was in “the tens of thousands of dollars.”
