A semi-trailer truck crashed into the front of a Mexican restaurant Friday morning.

The truck apparently lost control at 39th and Western on Chicago's Southwest Side, crashing into Cha Cha's Restaurant Bar on the edge of McKinley Park.

The vehicle crashed underneath a viaduct along a strip of Pershing commonly used by trucks driving through Chicago.

Only one very minor injury was reported, according to officials.

Crews worked to clean up an oil spill from the truck, and the Chicago Building Department was called to check the stability of the building before the truck was removed.
