Huntley teen charged after crashing into townhouses

HUNTLEY – A 17-year-old Huntley boy who crashed his vehicle into two townhouses was charged Tuesday with no valid driver’s license and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, police said.

The male driver, whose name was not released, lost control of his 2007 Nissan Murano when he crashed into the townhouses at 10926 Cape Cod Lane in Huntley around 4:45 p.m. Monday, said Deputy Chief Michael Klunk.

The driver was taken to Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin with minor injuries. One unit of the townhouses remains uninhabitable due to structural damage, Klunk said. No residents were home at the time of the accident.

The gas line for one of the townhouses was struck and had to be shut down, but it was later turned back on by Nicor.

No drugs or alcohol were suspected in the incident. The driver is due in court June 13, Klunk said.
