No one was injured when a car crashed into Rosin Eye Care at 705 E. Ogden Ave. in Naperville just before 1 p.m. Friday.
The late model Buick sedan, which had Kentucky license plates, went forward instead of reverse in the parking lot there, smashing through a metal fence and into the building, sources said. The driver was trapped inside the car.
A special rescue team from the Naperville Fire Department including a a fire engine, truck, heavy rescue squad vehicle, two medic units and more were sent to help.
When they arrived, firefighters found the car had crashed five feet into the lobby of the clinic.
The driver was extricated from the vehicle and refused transport to a hospital. None of the four employees in the building at the time was hurt.
An inspector from the city’s Transportation, Engineering and Development Team determined that parts of the building would have to be supported by structural shoring before occupants could safely re-enter.
Units from the Naperville Fire Department remained on the scene for another two hours until the building was deemed structurally sound.
Damage to the building is estimated at $50,000.
