PITTSBURGH - A car slammed into a Pittsburgh bakery late Monday night, but the owner of the Schorr's Bakery said it's not stopping him and his employees from preparing Thanksgiving pies and other baked goods for the holiday.

Police said the incident happened on Perrysville Avenue in the Perry North neighborhood around 11 p.m.

The car shattered the front window of the bakery and witnesses said the impact from the crash rattled the entire building. Investigators said people who live in apartments above the business were allowed to return to their homes after the crash.

Despite the damage, the owner said his employees will work to fill orders for the busy Thanksgiving holiday.

"We are just going to do the best we can. We will bake for the other store today. But everything will be open here tomorrow. That's all we can do is get everything for the holidays," said Ron Schorr. "This is probably the worst possible time this could happen. We are just trying to scramble and put together orders"

Schorr said they are able to bake at the Perry North location and are shipping orders to their West View location.

Police said they arrested the driver and charged him or her with DUI. The driver's name has not been released.
