Investigators want to know why the driver's seat was empty after a car slammed into a wall west of downtown Houston overnight. The car hit the Houston Avenue tunnel just below the railroad bridge near Washington. The driver missed the tunnel entrance for an unknown reason and slammed into the nearby walkway and wall.

Rescue crews found one man in the passenger seat. The driver's seat was empty. Investigators aren't sure the impact threw the driver into the passenger seat or if the driver disappeared.
