Authorities say no one was injured after a vehicle reversed through the front of a Highland Park house that was occupied Wednesday afternoon.
The Highland Park Fire Department and Highland Park Police Department responded around 1:25 p.m. Wednesday to the 500 block of Skokie Avenue for a report of a car into a building.
Highland Park Fire Chief Joe Schrage told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that crews arrived and confirmed a car was partially in a house.
It appeared the sedan had reversed from the street through the yard and into the front of the house.
The sedan was occupied only by the driver, who was not a resident of the home. He was uninjured.
Firefighters assisted the male driver out of the car and began evaluating the damage.
It was determined that the structure was structurally sound, Schrage said.
There were people inside the residence at the time of the crash but they were also uninjured.
The car was removed from the house and firefighters shored up a wall where the car had entered, Schrage said.
The building department, gas company and electric company were notified.
Schrage said he was unsure how exactly the crash was caused. The home remains habitable.
The cause of the crash is being investigated by the Highland Park Police Department.
