AUSTIN, Texas, March 25 (UPI) -- Five people were injured when a pickup truck struck a taco stand early Monday in Austin, Texas, police said.

The driver, who was being investigated for drunkeb driving, crashed his vehicle into the stand, then ran from the scene but was found about 2 miles away, Austin police said.

A woman and a man suffered broken ribs, and a cook working inside the stand suffered grease burns from the impact. Two other people received minor injuries, the Austin American-Statesman reported.

Police were investigating whether the incident was linked to a disturbance at a North Lamar taco stand shortly before the crash, the newspaper said.
