A car crashed into the front window and wall of a Chico dental office on East Avenue Friday afternoon.

Chico police got the call of a car into Family Sedation and Dentistry just after 2:30 p.m.

Officers say a Toyota Prius was traveling eastbound on East Avenue, just north of the Ceres Road intersection, when it plowed into the dental office.

The driver of the car was tested for DUI, but officers say drugs or alcohol were not a factor, but suspect a medical event caused the driver to lose control. The driver told police he had no recollection of the crash.

The vehicle caused moderate damages to the dental office, but fortunately no patients were in the office and no injuries have been reported.
