    A car slammed into a Boston Sports Clubs location in Newton, Massachusetts, on Thursday afternoon.

    "I just heard a big bang. And the desk was moving over to one of the rooms, and I saw the wall crashing a little bit in," said Cidalia Aguiar, a physical therapist at the health club. "I'm glad no one was in hte room."

    No one was injured, and a passenger in the car actually went inside and started working out as crews worked to remove the vehicle.

    The driver was an 82-year-old woman. Police said she hit the gas pedal instead of the brake while attempting to park in a handicap spot.
