WSB-TV reports that the vehicle suddenly drove off the road, smashing through the front window of the building around 4:15 a.m. Witnesses were stunned by the accident. "I heard the big crash and I saw the vehicle in the lobby. I didn’t see anybody hurt," Elvert Banks told WSB-TV.
Authorities say a man and a woman were inside the car, and marijuana was found in the driver's possession following a search. The car, a Mercedes Benz with Florida tags, was removed from the lobby and placed on a tow truck.
The man, who admitted to smoking marijuana earlier, was charged with reckless driving, DUI less safe and possession of marijuana. No injuries were reported.
