(WMC-TV) - Police said a car crashed into the front of BB King's on Beale Street early Thursday morning and then sped off.

According to police, a red 1998 Buick with Mississippi tags crashed into the front of the club just after 3 Thursday morning.

Shattered glass littered the sidewalk near the club.  Soon after the car drove off, clean up crews were working on the mess.

"Show's got to go on on Beale Street," said BB King's chef Seth Krasanove.  "We should be open, everybody.  There's going to be some cardboard in the window, or wood, I'm sure.  Just ignore it.  We're open for business.  This is Beale Street in Memphis and come on down."

The driver took out part of the traffic light box at the corner of Beale and Second Street.

Thursday night, Memphis police found the car that ran into the club.  The car was towed, but a suspect is not yet in custody.
