On a Saturday afternoon, an SUV crashed into CR8 Health, a weight loss and aesthetic medical business located west of Boca Raton. The accident happened on Glades Road, just west of the Florida Turnpike. The Palm Beach County Fire Rescue arrived at the scene at 4:35 p.m. and found that both individuals in the vehicle had declined transport.
The business owner, Dr. Jonathan M. Fields, stated that an 80-year-old woman had driven the SUV with a man. Luckily, the business was closed at the time of the accident, and nobody was injured. However, the crash caused significant damage to the lobby, leaving everyone who passed by in shock.
Dr. Fields also mentioned that 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.
Surveillance images showed a man inside the building who had been involved in the crash, and Dr. Fields estimated the damage to be in “the tens of thousands of dollars.” Despite this massive damage, CR8 Health has been operating in its shopping plaza location for over a year and a half.
