The airborne auto slammed into the Santa Ana building at about 5:30 a.m., causing a small blaze that the fire department quickly extinguished, Horner said.
The Los Angeles County fire department used a specialized forklift and wrecker to remove the auto, the police said.
The auto was later removed by the Orange County fire officials with the help of Los Angeles County Urban Search & Rescue team. He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. Both of them were taken to a local hospital to treat some minor injuries. The owner of the practice could not be reached for comment.
"Inside, it's a major loss", the woman, who works at the motel next door said.
