Crews work to repair the front entrance to an office in O'Hara after a car drove through it.

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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
