A Tulsa restaurant sustained serious damage early Monday morning when a pickup truck crashed into the front of the building.

Police say it happened a little after 3 a.m. at the 'It's Greek To Me Restaurant' located near Admiral and Harvard.

Police say the driver was making a right turn when the pickup truck struck the curb, causing the driver to lose control and causing the pickup to hit the front of the restaurant.

"The driver was trying to negotiate a right turn ran up on a curb and lost control and ran off the road a hit the building where it spun around and came to rest," said Tulsa Police Sgt. Chris Moudy.

Sgt. Moudy says the driver was transported to a Tulsa hospital in stable condition. He is expected to be okay.

Tulsa Police believe drugs and alcohol may be involved because they found evidence of both at the scene.

Sgt. Moudy says the driver could be cited for DUI once their investigation is complete.
