Van crashes into south Wichita restaurant over the noon hour


WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — A van crashed into the outside wall of Fat Ernie’s Family Dining in south Wichita Monday.

The crash happened around 12:15 in the 2800 block of South Hydraulic, near Wassall. No one was hurt, but there is damage to the front of the business. The restaurant closed for the rest of the day.

Fat Ernies will reopen tomorrow, Tuesday, January 4, but the dining area will be shut down.

Witnesses say while the driver backed out of the building, his van hit two other vehicles in the parking lot.

The driver, a man in his 50s, told police he was trying to park, and his foot slipped and hit the gas, causing him to hit the building. He told officers the same thing happened when he backed out of the building.
