Woman, Child Not Injured After Car Crashes Into House

View Comments ()



    A woman and her toddler were uninjured Thursday after she inadvertently drove her car into the side of a west suburban home.

    The driver said she put her foot on the gas instead of the brake, launching the car into a home on the 740 block of South Grove Avenue in Oak Park.

    The homeowner was understanding with the driver, explaining that a home across the street had been hit in a similar manner in the past.

    Neighbors expressed relief that the crash happened during the school day and not at a time when neighborhood children were walking to and from school.

    The driver was issued a citation for speeding.
