DES MOINES, IA -- Property damage was reported early Sunday after a driver crashed a car into a utility pole near River Drive Park in north Des Moines, according to KCCI.

The incident occurred at the corner of 14th Street and Euclid Avenue, or U.S. Highway 6, shortly before 2:00 a.m.

It was unclear what led up to the crash, but Des Moines police said all occupants in the car fled the scene of the crash by foot. As of this writing, authorities have not located the suspects.
