DES MOINES, Iowa -- One person was injured when an SUV slammed into a business early Monday morning.

Police were called to AYUB Restaurant at 2500 MLK Parkway around 5:00 a.m. When they arrived they found a white SUV had hit the building, breaking all of the front windows and bending some of the framing.

Officers located 26-year-old Wal G. Wal in the driver’s seat, suffering from a bloody lip. Wal claimed his friend had been driving, but took off after the accident and he was sitting in the driver’s seat because he was trying to back the vehicle out.

Wal could not tell officers the name of his friend or where he went.

Wal was transported to a local hospital.

Police are still investigating the accident.
