DUI driver crashes into Sandy Springs business, police say

A Sandy Springs business near I-285 was heavily damaged 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 damage 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 penetrating into the building and walls were damaged when Oskouei and responders arrived.
