Car drives through O'Hara storefront; no one injured
No was one hurt when a car jumped the curb and slammed through the front window of Newman Chiropractic at 50 Freeport Road in O'Hara last week.
“It was kind of like a miracle,” chiropractor Daniel Doyle said. “There was no staff injured and the lady driver, she was actually fine.”
He said an older driver thought she parked the car, but accidentally hit the gas and drove into into the office.
He said the accident occurred just before the office was set to open at 9 a.m. Dec. 1, so there were no patients in the waiting area.
The office was closed after the accident. Doyle expects it will take about two weeks to repair the entrance.
Contractors from Lutz Briggs Schultz worked well past 5 p.m. Dec. 1 to board the gaping hole left in the storefront.
Doyle took ownership last month of the office that has been there eight years.
“If something as horrible as what happened had to happen, it was actually wonderful how it turned out,” Doyle said.
