SCOTT DEPOT, W.Va. (WSAZ) - A car crashed into the Scott Depot Dairy Queen Saturday evening just after 7 p.m.

According to state police, the driver, Casey Oxley intentionally drove his car into the restaurant, but they say they do not have a motive as to why he did it.

Oxley was transported to the hospital where police say he assaulted an emergency room doctor and they had to restrain him.

The crash caused extensive damage to the DQ. Due to gasoline inside the building, crews put down white foam to keep the building from catching fire.

The dining room of the Dairy Queen was closed for remodeling. No customers were inside, but five employees were working.

Police say one of the employees was three feet from the front window and some of the employees suffered minor injuries.

Police have charged Oxley with five counts of attempted malicious assault, battery on a health care workers, battery on EMS personnel, assault on EMS personnel, destruction of property and reckless driving.

He is being held on a $100,000 cash bond in the Western Regional Jail.
