A black SUV smashed through the entrance of Summit Orthopaedics at Mountain View Hospital on Tuesday afternoon. Witnesses say an elderly man, who has not been identified, was in the process of picking up his wife from the clinic when the accident happened. “It looked like he confused the gas and the brake,” athletic trainer Todd Johnson said. “The car went right across the front and didn’t slow down … when he stopped his tires were still spinning.” Johnson was inside the building on a treadmill and watched the crash through a window. The vehicle destroyed the sliding glass door entrance of the building.
