Car Plows Into Austin Street Dental Office in Early Morning Hours Sunday

Nov. 18, 2019 By Allie Griffin

A car plowed into a Forest Hills dental office early Sunday morning, with footage of the aftermath posted on the Citizen App.

The driver of a Toyota SUV drove the vehicle into the Dental365 office, located at 70-09 Austin St., at about 2 a.m. on Nov. 17, the office said in a statement.

The car leaped the curb and drove over the sidewalk, until it landed almost fully inside of the office, where it can be seen on a video posted to the Citizen app.

Dental365 said it was currently reviewing the damages to see how long repairs to its office would take. Patients who normally visit the Forest Hills office are able to see dentists at its dozens of other locations throughout the city, including Dental365’s nearby Maspeth office, located at 66-45 Grand Ave.

The dental office added in a statement that police said there were no injuries as a result of the crash.

The front office requires a little filling. The car needs to go to a Dent Ist. No one was hurt so a joke might be good here.

Perhaps speed bumps should be installed along Austin St. Oh wait those do not generate revenue so continue with “Vision Zero” revenue generation scheme.

Any information on why this happened? Run the plate to see if there are other moving violations for this vehicle.
