Car drives into Papa Johns building Sunday morning

In the incident, police said the driver lost control of the car and struck the building.

MARIETTA, Ga. -- A car struck a Papa Johns Pizza building in Marietta on Sunday morning in what police suggest is a case of distracted driving.

In the incident, near the intersection of Whitlock Avenue and Burnt Hickory Road, west of the Marietta Square, the driver of the car lost control and struck the building.

Photos show major damage to the front end of the car and moderate damage to the building.

A tweet from Marietta Police says, "People ask all the time: 'do you really think we NEED a hands free distracted driving LAW?!'"

While Georgia's new hands-free law goes into effect on July 1, the cities of Marietta and Smyrna have had similar laws of their own on the books since April.

No injuries were reported.
