He had just finished his workout on the treadmill when suddenly a car came plowing through the Anytime Fitness gym right next to him. Ted Hoeller talked about his very close call with WFTS in Tampa Bay, Florida and how he came face to face with the Tesla driver and how he and other man working out pulled the driver to safety.
