A car crashed into Ammazza in Atlanta over the weekend.

A popular Old Fourth Ward pizzeria has temporarily halted slinging its Neapolitan-style pies after a car crashed into it Saturday.

Ammazza shared the news with customers via Facebook, saying it will be closed until further notice due to unfortunate circumstances.

The circumstances are that the car broke a water pipe, sending “thousands of gallons of water flooding the entire building,” the restaurant wrote.

“Bare with us as we try to get the repairs done as quickly as possible,” the post said. “We are just thankful none of our amazing patrons or employees were injured.”

Joy Barnes happened to drive by the “horrific scene” on a way to a friend’s house, she said in an interview.

“I had never seen anything like that before,” Barnes said, referring to the car sticking out of a brick wall.

Two women who were interviewed by responders said the driver hit other cars before crashing into the restaurant, apparently due to having a medical episode, according to Barnes.

An Atlanta Fire Rescue Department spokesman said there was no additional information available Monday morning.
