COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A man is in custody after authorities say a vehicle he was driving struck a restaurant window in downtown Columbia and he fled the scene.

Columbia police Sgt. Chad Gooch says four people were taken to the university hospital with injuries Saturday night after the driver hit a window at Addison’s Grill, causing glass to fall inside. Gooch did not know the extent of their injuries.

Gooch says that the driver was arrested on suspicion of leaving the scene of an accident. He says police are investigating whether alcohol was a factor.

A diner told The Columbia Daily Tribune that he saw a truck back into a window in the rear of the restaurant, then pull away.

The restaurant was evacuated and closed after the crash.
