Speedy Burger reopens after car crash

WICHITA — Speedy Burger owner Travis Lake wants everyone to know he's reopened his restaurant at 3090 W. 13th St.

Last week, a man who suffered a medical condition crashed into the restaurant.

Lake was across the street and saw fire trucks. He figured a nearby business was on fire. When he got back to his restaurant, a fireman asked him to unlock it.

"I was like, why?" Lake says. "I opened it up, and there was a car inside our store."

The drive-through will take longer to reopen while insurance issues are worked out. Lake says it will be operational again as soon as he receives payment to fix it.
