A Rock Hill woman crashed her bicycle into a store-front window on Cherry Road early Thursday morning, shattering glass and injuring her arms and legs.

Rock Hill police officers went to the Planet Fitness gym around 3 a.m., where they say the woman was stuck in the double-pane glass window. Police say several people were on scene at the time.

The woman told officers that she was riding her bicycle through the parking lot, from Cherry Road, when her bike’s brakes failed and she lost control, according to a police report. Planet Fitness is located in a shopping center near Cherry Park and the parking lot has a slope downward from the highway to the gym.

The accident caused nearly $1,000 worth of damage to the gym window, the report states. A gym manager told The Herald on Thursday that Planet Fitness was not open at the time of the incident and that the window will soon be repaired.
