WICHITA, Kan. -- A car crashed into a north Wichita restaurant early Friday. But when police showed up, the car was empty.

Officers say around 2 a.m., a Ford Mustang smashed into Las Mananitas, located in the 2300 block of North Arkansas. The restaurant was closed at the time, and the crash forced some utilities to be shut down at the building.

"The main concern is that the vehicle struck a gas meter outside the building," Sgt. Jeff Swanson said, "And also struck the guide line for an electric pole. So we had to terminate service, to both the gas and the electric."

A search for people who may have been in the car was underway Friday morning.
