OKLAHOMA CITY -- Crews shut off a natural gas line after a driver crashed into a Domino's Pizza store in northwest Oklahoma City Thursday morning.

Police said a woman was dropping off her dog at a groomers next door to the Domino's near Northwest 26th Street and North MacArthur Boulevard. It appeared she failed to hit the brakes and slammed into the front of the store, going through the window and stopping in the middle of the business.

The pizza store was not open at the time and no workers were inside. The crash damaged a natural gas line, so crews shut it off.

When police spoke to the driver, they said she appeared intoxicated. She was arrested for DUI and driving with a suspended license.

Firefighters secured the area and pulled the car out of the pizza store. There are no reports of injuries.
