An SUV crashed into a weight loss and aesthetic medical business west of Boca Raton on Saturday, damaging the waiting room. The Palm Beach County Fire Rescue arrived at the accident location on Glades Road at 4:35 p.m. According to an email in an inquiry from WPTV, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue said that both individuals in the vehicle declined transport.
The business owner, Dr. Jonathan M. Fields, told WPTV that an 80-year-old woman drove the SUV with a man. The business, CR8 Health, is located at 8234 Glades Road. Fields stated that “luckily the business was closed and nobody was injured, but it destroyed the lobby and it was quite a scare for the owners and everyone passing by that saw it.” He also mentioned that “during business hours it could have easily been fatal as that area is usually full of people.”
It was then found out through security camera footage that there was a cleaning lady who received a notification from the alarm system about the crash. The surveillance image of the crash showed a man inside the building who had been involved in the crash and Fields estimated the damage was in “the tens of thousands of dollars.” Despite the massive damage, the business has been situated in the shopping plaza for a year and a half.
