SUV slams into NW Side house

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A driver slammed into a house on Chicago's Northwest Side Thursday night.

A 38-year-old man was driving east in the 2400-block of West Wabansia Avenue when police said he swerved to avoid hitting a vehicle and hit the wall of the home.

The crash caused some structural damage, but no injuries reported.

A man living there said it could have been much worse if he were sitting at his desk, which is now covered in debris.

"All of a sudden I head a bunch of glass shattering and I put some clothes on and come out and I see that there is a car in my wall," said Cameron Berwaldt, who lives in a basement apartment.

The driver was cited for not having insurance.
