A school bus crashed into a Detroit home Friday night.

Investigators said that the 56-year-old driver blacked out or had a medical emergency before the accident. She was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities said the house was empty and there were no passengers on the bus at the time of the crash.

Neighbors who heard the incident as it happened said they were concerned about a possible gas leak.

"I was actually sitting in my room and I heard the boom and the crash, and when I looked out the window, I saw the bus inside the house," a neighbor said. "And we noticed that the gas thing on the house is completely off. And we started smelling gas."

Witnesses said a neighbor turned the gas off before utility workers arrived.

Nobody other than the driver was hurt.
