Authorities are investigating after a vehicle strikes an Evansville business Friday. 

According to the police report, officers were called to Laundry USA in the 1400 Block of Washington Avenue for a hit and run with property damage.

The report states an employee heard a loud noise, and then people inside the business told him a car hit a sliding glass door on the south side of the business. 

We're told the officers who responded saw broken glass on the door and the bottom of the door was bent. 

The report says the owner of Laundry USA showed officers the camera footage of the vehicle. 

We're told the vehicle was possibly early 2000's model, four door passenger car with a sunroof, and the driver appeared to be a man.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
