GASTONIA, North Carolina (AP) -- A speeding car ran out of control and plowed into lines of customers waiting outside a Dairy Queen, throwing people as far as 20 feet and knocking some out of their shoes, witnesses said. Five people were injured.

Witnesses said the car appeared to have been racing with another car when it hit a utility pole and spun into two lines of people Monday night.

Both drivers fled after the accident, police Officer Keith Quinn said. No arrests had been made as of Tuesday morning, authorities said.
