The last concern on a person's mind, while waiting to be seen at the dentist, is being struck by a vehicle. Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened on Friday in Mehlville, Missouri. As several patients were waiting for their appointments at Mark Meyer's dental office,an SUV crashed into the building. The driver attempted to park his vehicle in a parking space in front of the building when he pushed on the gas pedal instead of the brakes. He pushed the gas with such forced that the SUV jumped a curb and drove through the waiting room wall.
Mehlville authorities responded to the accident on Baptist Church Road at the dental office in south Saint Louis County. Witnesses stated that the accident sounded like an explosion or a bomb detonating. Good Samaritans rushed to the scene and helped free an elderly woman who had been trapped between the wall and a window frame. Two individuals were injured and transported to the hospital. The dental office, which specializes in affordable dentures, will be closed until the damage can be repaired.
