A car slid off a snowy road and smashed through the front window of a dentist’s office in Turtle Creek early Tuesday morning, police told Tribune-Review News Partner WPXI.

The driver was likely drunk, police told WPXI.

The car came to a stop in the lobby of Dr. Nancy Aharon on the corner of Penn Avenue and Shaw Avenue just after 2 a.m.

The driver and one passenger were taken to a nearby hospital. DUI charges are pending against the driver, who has not been identified, according to WPXI.

A second unidentified passenger was arrested on an outstanding warrant for probation violation, WPXI reported.

Nobody was inside the office.

The broken window was boarded up before 5 a.m.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
