DRIVER CHECKED AS A PRECAUTION; NO SERIOUS INJURIES AT THE SCENE
Buffalo Grove police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 9:52 AM Saturday January 5, 2019 to a report of a crash into Workout Anytime fitness center, 700 South Buffalo Grove Rd Buffalo Grove, Il. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that a car crashed into the fitness center and caused structural damage, but that nobody was injured.
A paramedic ambulance crew was dispatched at the request of the Buffalo Grove Fire Department Battalion Chief about 10:03 a.m. to check on the driver as a precaution. The older adult male driver was transported by paramedics to Northwest Community Hospital.
The vehicle — a Toyota Camry — crashed front-end first through a glass door frame, glass window frames, and a lower decorative wall at the south side of the building and came to rest about three car lengths inside the building. Firefighters and building department officials determined that there was no major structural damage to the building.
Firefighters initiated contact with the building management company and a board-up company via Northwest Central Dispatch System.
The fitness business was able to stay fully operational, and was only affected by temporary board up of glass doors and windows.
Workout Anytime has eight locations in Chicagoland — Buffalo Grove, Crest Hill, Darien, Downers Grove, Mundelein, Naperville (2), and Wauconda.
