A Sandy Springs busi­ness near I-285 was heav­ily dam- aged early Thurs­day when a pickup truck crashed into it, the owner told AJC.com.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physi­cians on Roswell Road had a “mon­ster” amount of dam- age from the crash, owner Ar­min Osk­ouei said.

The call came in to po­lice at 3:45 a.m., Sandy Springs po­lice Sgt. Sam Wor­shan said. Wa­ter was pen­e­trat- ing into the build­ing and walls were dam­aged when Osk­ouei and re­spon­ders ar­rived.

Of­fi­cials left but were called back to the med­i­cal of­fice when Osk­ouei and oth­ers no­ticed more dam­age.

That’s when they saw the truck, which had driven through fences and bushes af­ter hit­ting the build­ing. The driver was DUI, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

The owner said he has “no idea” of the ex­tent of the dam­age.

“The good news here,” Osk­ouei said, “is no­body got hurt.”
