Car crashes into Tampa medical office building

TAMPA — A car crashed into a medical office Monday afternoon, causing minor injuries to the driver and thousands of dollars in damage to the building.

At about 2 p.m., deputies said, Anuradaha Pendyal was turning right in a 1999 Toyota Corolla onto Medical Park Drive from northbound Bruce B. Downs Boulevard when her left front wheel hit a concrete divider, and she lost control.

Pendyal then made a right into a concrete curb, drove about 100 feet and then made a sharp left turn into the glass doors of the Lifepoint Medical Center, 3000 Medical Park Drive.

The Corolla went about 40 feet into the building and finally crashed to a halt at the lobby's elevators.

No one in the building was injured, deputies said. Pendyal, 44, was treated by Fire Rescue responders at the scene.

Building damage was estimated at more than $150,000.
