Customer crashes vehicle into animal hospital
Dec 8, 2010
A bunch of four-legged creatures and the humans caring for them got the shock of their lives when a car crashed into an animal hospital, the Baltimore Sun reports.
According to the news outlet, a woman became distracted in her vehicle and stepped on the gas instead of the brakes, causing her to bust through a brick wall and into the Eastern Animal Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. Luckily, no people or animals were seriously injured.
However, employees at the facility have explained the incident has put a damper on their day-to-day activities.
"We have a lot of damage with our entire lounge filled with glass, brick and drywall," Hospital Manager Kristy Twining told the news outlet. "I guess we will have to be really creative about where we have lunch for a while."
According to its website, Baltimore's Eastern Animal Hospital is a full-service facility that offers medical, surgical, dental and emergency care. The medical center has helped countless four-legged creatures and supported several community animal fundraisers since its inception in 1981.
