HENRICO, Va.(WTVR)—A Jeep Cherokee smashed through the lobby of a children’s gym, where a birthday party was underway.
Henrico Police got a report around 3:30 p.m., that an adult male drove a Jeep Cherokee through the lobby of Little Gym, located in the 8300 block of Staples Mill Road.
There were around 30 kids and adults in the gym for a birthday party, but no one was hurt because they were in the back area.
“The way it happened, it could have been a lot worse,” Jamie QuackenBush, director of Little Gym, said. “We are grateful no one was hurt. Everything damaged can be replaced. We are very lucky.”
Police said that the driver was charged with reckless driving. The building inspector said the building was not condemned, but it is currently closed.
It will reopen once repairs are done.
