Dr. Jonathan M. Fields, the owner of CR8 Health in Boca Raton, was relieved to learn that nobody was injured when an SUV crashed into his business on Saturday afternoon. The accident happened at 4:35 p.m., near Glades Road, west of the Florida Turnpike. Palm Beach County Fire Rescue arrived at the scene and found both individuals in the vehicle had declined transport.
Dr. Fields shared with WPTV that it was an 80-year-old woman who drove the SUV with a man. Despite the damage caused to the waiting room and lobby, Fields stated that he was grateful that it happened during off-hours and no one was hurt. He also mentioned that if it had occurred during business hours, it could have easily been fatal as there are usually many people in the area at that time.
Surveillance footage revealed a cleaning lady who received an alert from the alarm system about the crash, which helped authorities arrive quickly on the scene. According to Fields, there were significant damages estimated in “the tens of thousands of dollars,” but he was relieved to share that his business has been operating for over a year and a half in its current location within a shopping plaza.
