On Saturday, an SUV crashed into a weight loss and aesthetic medical business west of Boca Raton. The accident occurred at 4:35 p.m. on Glades Road, just west of the Florida Turnpike. According to an email from WPTV, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue arrived at the scene and found that both individuals in the vehicle had declined transport.
The business owner, Dr. Jonathan M. Fields, told WPTV that an 80-year-old woman had driven the SUV with a man. The business, CR8 Health, is located at 8234 Glades Road. Dr. Fields stated that “luckily the business was closed and nobody was injured,” but the crash had destroyed the lobby and left everyone nearby in a state of shock. He added that during business hours it could have easily been fatal as that area is usually full of people.
Security camera footage later revealed that there was a cleaning lady who received a notification from the alarm system about the crash. Surveillance images showed a man inside the building who had been involved in the crash. Dr. Fields estimated the damage to be in “the tens of thousands of dollars.” Despite this massive damage, CR8 Health has been operating in the shopping plaza for over a year and a half.
