A cleaning lady who received a notification from the alarm system about an SUV crashing into a weight loss and aesthetic medical business in Boca Raton was the only person on site when the accident occurred. The Palm Beach County Fire Rescue arrived at the scene on Glades Road at 4:35 p.m. on Saturday, West of the Florida Turnpike. According to an email in an inquiry from WPTV, both individuals in the vehicle declined transport.
Dr. Jonathan M. Fields, owner of CR8 Health, located at 8234 Glades Road, stated that luckily the business was closed and nobody was injured, but it destroyed the lobby and was quite a scare for everyone passing by. Fields also mentioned that during business hours it could have easily been fatal as that area is usually full of people. He said that he and his brother Dr. Nadav D., own the business together and they were shocked by the news of the crash.
Surveillance footage showed a man inside the building who had been involved in the crash and Fields estimated the damage to be 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, and Fields hopes to rebuild and continue serving his customers as soon as possible.
