WATHENA, Kan. (AP) _ Witnesses say a northeast Kansas man may have suffered a medical problem before driving his van into a Pizza Hut restaurant.

KQTV reports the crash happened Friday afternoon in Wathena.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the 45-year-old Leavenworth man was driving east on U.S. 36 when his van drifted into the westbound lanes, hit a ditch and vaulted across the parking lot into the Pizza Hut.

No one inside was hurt, but a group of Doniphan County officers had just finished a lunch meeting and witnessed the accident. Another witness, Wathena firefighter Bob Ryser, says the driver was talking afterward but seemed confused and appeared to have suffered a medical problem.

The driver was taken to a hospital in St. Joseph, Mo.
