A pickup truck crashed into the front of a dry-cleaning business Sunday night in the Rosewood Commons shopping center along Robinwood Drive, police said.

The man driving the truck was going to get something to eat when he attempted to park the truck, said Deputy C. Peiffer of the Washington County Sheriff's Office. The driver of the truck that struck Zhest "Organic" Dry Cleaners was not sure how it happened, Peiffer said.

No one was hurt, Peiffer said.

The truck was resting on a metal railing outside the business after the accident and a front window on the business was shattered. Part of the brick exterior of the building was buckled.

The Washington County Division of Emergency Services Special Operations Team responded to make sure the building was safe and it was determined to be OK, Peiffer said. Officials, who were called to the shopping center at 7:31 p.m., used a torch to cut and remove the metal railing that was lodged under the truck.
