A car crashed into a house in northwest suburban Streamwood.

The car broke through the outside wall of the house and then fell partially into the home's basement.

The homeowners were home at the time and a painter was working inside as well.

"We thought a bomb went off, me and the homeowner," said Scott Cecille, who was working inside the home at the time of the crash. "All I can say is when something like this happens you want to run. It all happened so fast. (I) ran back to check and see, make sure the driver's ok and that was the most important thing, that everybody's ok."

Police say the driver suffered only minor injuries. Nobody else was injured.
