OKLAHOMA CITY- An Oklahoma City business owner is busy cleaning up a big mess after an SUV plowed through a wedding boutique early Sunday morning.

"She came right through here, took out this support beam, drove all the way through into our conference area which is where cake was doing cake tastings," Amanda Sikich, owner of Wedding Boutique OKC, says. "It shifted the entire wall from that."

Police say the driver of an SUV drove straight into the shop near Wilshire and May.

"About 2:15 this morning, we received a phone call from the monitoring company," Sikich remembers. "They sent out a cop, called me back and said we had a car in our building."

The SUV caught on fire, but the driver was able to make it out safely.

"The car did catch on fire which is what you're seeing right there," Sikich says.

Thanks to quick thinking of the Oklahoma City Fire Department, there wasn't a larger blaze on top of the mess.

The business owner says police told her the driver was possibly intoxicated.

Now, Sikich is left to clean up the mess so she can get back to helping local brides.

"This just gives me the chance to redesign and make something better, so we'll do it," Sikich says.

At this point, police are not releasing many details about the crash.
