Car crashes into house in unincorporated Crystal Lake

CRYSTAL LAKE – A medical condition may have caused a 24-year-old man to crash his car into a house in unincorporated Crystal Lake, according to a preliminary investigation by the McHenry County Sheriff's Office.

Emergency responders were dispatched at 2:23 p.m. Friday to the 600 block of East Crystal Lake Avenue where a 2007 blue Honda Fit had crashed into a house, McHenry County Sheriff Sgt. Porfirio Campos-Cruz said.

The driver, a 24-year-old man, was taken to Centegra Hospital – McHenry where he still is under medical care, Campos-Cruz said. No one else was injured.

The accident moderately damaged the front end of the vehicle, as well as the front porch and brick exterior of the house at the front door, Campos-Cruz said. Officials from the county's Planning and Development Department deemed the house structurally sound.

No citations have been issued, and the accident still is under investigation.
