Wichita Police are searching for the driver of a car after the vehicle slammed into a north Wichita restaurant.

Officers were called to the scene in the 2300 block of North Arkansas around 2 a.m. Friday. When crews arrived, they found a late model Ford Mustang that hit the building.

The driver was not at the scene.

Sgt. Jeff Swanson, Wichita Police, said the driver also struck a power pole or street light.

"It then crashed into a gas meter attached to the building," Swanson said.

Utilities were turned off, and did not pose a threat while crews cleared the scene.

Swanson said officers are following leads on the crash. It remains under investigation.
