A scary moment happened Wednesday at a Gulfport eye clinic when a SUV came crashing through the front door. The accident occurred around 1 p.m. Wednesday afternoon on Creosote Road. Employees say a man and his wife in their 60s pulled up in front of Kern Optical. The employees say that the man claimed his foot was on the brake when he accidently stepped on the gas. That's when his SUV went barreling into the building.
Stephanie Jenkins, an employee at Kern Optical, says, “I was waiting on a customer out front. I looked up and I saw a huge SUV coming straight at me. It busted through both doors. The walls broke. The brick came off the wall and the glass was shattered, but thankfully none of us were hurt.” No injuries were reported in the crash. The building did however receive significant damage. The SUV was able to drive away from the accident.
