Whiplash closed for repairs after car crashes into gas meter

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Whiplash Bar and Grill has been temporarily closed after a low-speed car crash damaged the building's gas meter.

Topeka police say the crash happened just after 6:00 p.m. Sunday when a man was trying to pull his car into a parking spot, and accidentally hit the meter.

The bar was forced to close for safety reasons as Kansas Gas crews work through the night to replace the damaged meter.

TPD says alcohol was not involved, and no one was injured in the crash.
