A building on the Oxford Square was struck and damaged Monday by a vehicle out of control.

The driver of a truck suffered a medical episode and crashed into the building around 5:30 a.m., according to the Oxford Police Department.

The driver, heading westbound on Jackson Avenue, went between two crape myrtles on the Square, knocking over an electric box.

It then struck a support to an overhang at Oxford Grillehouse and a parking meter before crashing into the corner of the restaurant and jcg apparel.

The truck then bounced off the building, knocking over a light pole and another parking meter before coming to rest against a support for the balcony at Wilson Law Firm above Ajax Diner.
