"Right now, we are looking at mechanical failure," Des Moines Police Department Sgt. Paul Parizek told WHO. "There is no impairment. He didn't report any medical problems. There may have been something wrong with the car. He simply didn't have control."

According to KCCI, the driver -- who police said is from Arkansas and did not have a license -- walked out with a pizza in his hand.

Police said the driver received two citations and was OK after the crash.
