ELYRIA- Several people are recovering after a car crashed into the Leidenheimer Dental Group in Elyria Monday.

It happened just before noon on North Ridge Road.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, a woman in a Mercedes Benz was eastbound on North Ridge Road, trying to turn into the driveway of the dentist's office, when she was struck from behind by another woman, who was driving a Cadillac station wagon.

The woman in the Mercedes traveled off the right side of the road and drove through the wall of Leidenheimer Dental Group.

Dr. Leidenheimer said the car careened into the building where his employees' desks are.

The highway patrol said three workers inside the building suffered minor injuries.

The occupants of each vehicle also suffered minor injuries and were taken to the hospital.
