PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Crews are working to clean up debris in northwest Portland after a woman fell asleep while driving and crashed into a local business.

Police were called to Portland Direct Tile & Marble on NW Yeon Avenue around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Officials said the woman's car crashed through the front windows of the building and came to a rest about 20 feet inside the store.

The owner of Portland Direct Tile & Marble said he is shocked that something like this would happen and he is not sure on the extent of the damages.

The owner added that employees are coming in to help clean up the wreckage and hopefully they will be open for business tomorrow.

The condition of the driver is unknown but medical officials said she is expected to be okay.
