A driver was injured after they hit a utility pole, sparking a tree fire, and then crashed into a house in Woodstock Saturday evening, fire officials said.
The Woodstock Police Department and Woodstock Fire/Rescue District responded around 8:51 p.m. Saturday to the 500 block of Stewart Avenue for a report of a vehicle crash with entrapment.
Woodstock Fire/Rescue District Communication Specialist Alex Vucha said firefighters arrived on the scene within four minutes.
They found a vehicle had struck the side of a single-family residence.
The adult male driver was not trapped in his vehicle, Vucha said.
Paramedics assessed him and transported him to Northwestern Medicine Huntley Hospital with minor injuries.
The home sustained minor damage in the collision, Vucha said. No one inside the home was injured.
The SUV also damaged a utility pole, causing it to lean over the roadway and prompting a temporary closure of Stewart Avenue.
A tree caught on fire after the power line made contact with it, Vucha said. It self-extinguished within minutes.
The cause of the crash is being investigated by Woodstock Police Department.
