On Saturday, an SUV crashed into a weight loss and aesthetic medical business in Boca Raton, causing significant damage to the waiting room. The Palm Beach County Fire Rescue arrived at the scene on Glades Road, just west of the Florida Turnpike, at 4:35 p.m. According to an email from WPTV, both individuals in the vehicle declined transport.
Dr. Jonathan M. Fields, owner of CR8 Health located at 8234 Glades Road, stated that an 80-year-old woman drove the SUV with a man. The business was closed for the weekend when the crash occurred, but if it had happened during business hours it could have been fatal as the area is usually full of people. Dr. Fields thankfully reported that no one was injured in the incident.
The cleaning lady who works at CR8 Health received a notification from the alarm system about the crash and was able to see surveillance footage of the incident. Dr. Fields estimated that the damage caused by the crash was in “the tens of thousands of dollars.” Despite this significant damage, CR8 Health has been operating in its shopping plaza location for over a year and a half.
