PEMBROKE PINES (CBSMiami) – Nobody was injured Tuesday when a car crashed into the waiting room at a chiropractic office.

The car slammed into the Mona Issa Chiropractic and Wellness Center located at 11200 Pines Boulevard in Pembroke Pines Monday morning.

Investigators said the woman behind the wheel hit the gas instead of the brake, hurling the car inside.

Sara Morales works at the chiropractic center.  She’s grateful the office is closed on Tuesday otherwise, she would have been at her desk, which is right by where the car entered.

“She demolished the whole waiting room. The whole reception front area gone. She went all the way through the wall,” said Sara Morales, who works in the office.

The driver did not want to speak to CBS4’s Ted Scouten.

The structure, according to Pembroke Pines Police Department, was declared sound.

Lisa Morales, who also works at the Wellness Center, is also grateful she and no patients were in the office.

“We think about patients, what if somebody was sitting in the chair, what if I was sitting at my desk right there. Definitely there would have been a loss of life or severe damage,” Lisa Morales said.

Sara Morales told Scouten this isn’t the first time a car plows through the front window–it happened two years ago.
