A South Surrey denture clinic suffered significant damage Tuesday afternoon

SUV crashes into South Surrey denture clinic

No one was injured in the afternoon crash, which left the driver and clinic employees shaken

Susan Simmons shudders to think about what the outcome may have been Tuesday afternoon if she had been just a few minutes longer in the charts and computer room of the South Surrey office she manages.

Around 12:30 p.m., a Lexus SUV crashed backwards through the front entrance, shattering glass, damaging a wall and destroying Envision Denture and Implant Centre’s most expensive piece of equipment, a digital scanner.

“I was just standing where that car went through the wall,” a shaken Simmons told Peace Arch News shortly after the crash.

“It just (went) ‘boom’ – it sounded like a bomb.”

Police at the 104-2055 152 St. scene said no one was injured in the crash, which clinic owner Tanya Little described as “pretty scary.”

Little said the driver of the SUV, who she described as a senior woman, was “very rattled” by the incident.

Clients who were arriving for appointments in the aftermath were assured that their denture work would be taken care of.

Little told PAN she hoped to have the clinic back open for business on Monday. It has been six years at its current location.
