UPDATE:

Davenport police have opened two of the southbound lanes of North Harrison Street to traffic. 

Police had closed all lanes at 30th Street at 8:50 p.m. after the driver of a Buick Verano lost control and struck a house in the 2800 block of Harrison Street. 

The impact caused a gas leak and punched a hole in the base of the home. The basement was exposed, and a water line was damaged and spewing water. 

The driver of the car fled the scene. Police said the car was not stolen. 

Gas could be heard leaking from the home for about a block. Firefighters evacuated several homes in the area.
