    One person is dead after a crash involving a semi-truck and a car sent the semi slamming into a south suburban home Wednesday afternoon.

    The crash was reported near 217th Street and Peterson in Sauk Village.

    Illinois State Police said the truck was involved in a crash with a sedan, killing the 28-year-old driver of the sedan. The crash sent the truck off the roadway and into the back end of a vacant residence, authorities said. 

    Video from the scene showed a small car wrapped around a tree next to a semi that had collided into part of a home close to northbound IL-394 and Sauk Trail Road.

    The 68-year-old driver of the semi declined medical attention.

    Northbound 394 was shut down north of Sauk Trail Road as police investigated.
