DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Police are looking for the driver of a vehicle that crashed into a Dallas antique store early Monday morning. The incident took place at Richard Hecht Antiques, located in the 2500 block of Oak Lawn Avenue.

According to officials at the scene, the vehicle was a 2009 black Ford Mustang. After the car plowed into the store, the driver fled before anyone could arrive. That car was found abandoned a couple of blocks away from the crash site.

Nobody was hurt during the crash because nobody was inside of the store. The condition of the driver, however, is unknown.

Hecht has owned the antique store for 25 years. Most of his customers make appointments. The store cleanup is already complete – a glass company boarded up the smashed windows until permanent replacements can be installed – but authorities are now searching for the driver.

There was minimal damage done to the antiques inside. Hecht said that the damages will be covered by his insurance. “No one was hurt. The automobile was found two blocks away. The driver left the scene. We’ve got a locator number for the vehicle. He has insurance.” Hecht said. “I think everything will be fine.”
