A weight loss and aesthetic medical business west of Boca Raton, located at 8234 Glades Road, was hit by an SUV on the weekend. The accident happened at 4:35 p.m. on Saturday, just West of the Florida Turnpike. The Palm Beach County Fire Rescue arrived at the scene and found that both individuals in the vehicle had declined transport.
Dr. Jonathan M. Fields, owner of CR8 Health with his brother Dr. Nadav D., told WPTV that an 80-year-old woman drove the SUV with a man. Fortunately, nobody was injured, but the lobby was destroyed and it caused quite a scare for everyone passing by who saw it. During business hours, it could have easily been fatal as that area is usually full of people.
It was 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 Fields estimated that the damage was in “the tens of thousands of dollars.” Despite this massive damage, CR8 Health has been located in the shopping plaza for a year and a half.
