It was an ordinary Monday morning at Ocean Springs Internal Medicine. Then at 9:30 a.m. the wall at the doctor's office moved.
"Suddenly a Jeep Cherokee came flying through the wall," Ocean Springs Internal Medicine employee Leigh Ann Scharr said.
Eyewitness John Mitchell was in the waiting room, sitting next to a woman when the vehicle crashed through.
"She was gone," Mitchell said.
The woman was pinned to the ground with only a chair between her and the truck.
According to Ocean Springs police Sgt. Al Parker, a 74-year-old Vancleave man was driving the SUV.
"He man was trying to pull into the parking space. He went to back up to correct the angle he was in and that's when he backed into another car in the parking lot. Once he made contact with that car, he then put his SUV into drive and then accelerated across the parking lot into the doctor's office," Parker explained.
Police arrived and had the SUV removed from the doctor's office.
Work crews spent the day cleaning up. Nurses and office workers were busy recovering from a mild form of shock, realizing how fortunate they are that the situation was not worse.
At this time no charges have been filed.
"We are still doing some research on the man's driving status," Parker said.
According to Parker, two patients, the driver of the SUV and another driver were taken to Ocean Springs Hospital with minor injuries. This accident is still under investigation.
