The search continues Sunday for a man who slammed his SUV into a popular restaurant on Melrose Avenue, injuring a diner before taking off.

Police later found the SUV abandoned nearby, but there was no sign of the driver, according the media reports.

The crash occurred at 4:30 p.m. Saturday at Tere’s Mexican Grill, 5870 Melrose Ave., when the SUV driver lost control, slammed into the front of the restaurant, then drove off, witnesses told reporters.

A 26-year-old man who was dining outside with a friend was struck and pushed into the building. Witnesses said he had blood on his forehead and ankle and was taken to a hospital in unknown condition.
