Dr. Jonathan M. Fields, the owner of CR8 Health, an aesthetic medical business located on Glades Road in Boca Raton, spoke to WPTV after an SUV crashed into his business on Saturday evening. The accident happened at 4:35 p.m., just west of the Florida Turnpike.
According to Fields, both individuals in the vehicle declined transport after the crash and nobody was injured. However, the impact destroyed the waiting room and caused significant damage to the rest of the building.
Luckily for Fields and his employees, the business was closed at the time of the accident. But if it had happened during business hours, it could have been fatal as that area is usually full of people. The cleaning lady who received a notification from the alarm system about the crash was able to alert authorities and ensure that no one else was hurt.
The surveillance footage showed a man inside the building who had been involved in the crash, but Fields estimated that the damage was in “the tens of thousands of dollars.” Despite this massive damage, CR8 Health has been situated in its shopping plaza location for over a year and a half.
