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