Car crashes into Kensington gym

Posted: Updated:

Fortunately, no one was injured Monday when a silver Acura smashed into the front window of the Retro Fitness gym on Nicholson Lane in Kensington. It happened shortly after 2:30 p.m.

People who work nearby tell FOX 5 they heard a terrible noise, and along with people working out in the gym, rushed over to see if they could help the driver. They say she was an elderly woman, who did not appear hurt, and who refused medical treatment from paramedics when an ambulance came.

One woman who works out at the gym says the employees at the day spa next door said the driver was late for a spa appointment, and while parking her car, stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake.

After a tow truck came to get the car, the woman went to the spa for her appointment.

Police have not identified the woman, but say she is being charged with negligent driving.
