An Elgin man and his 2001 BMW ended up hitting the second story of a home on the 100 block of River Bluff Road in Elgin Sunday morning after he ran through a stop sign and jumped the curb at the intersection of Douglas Avenue and River Bluff Road, Elgin police said.

Department spokeswoman Sue Olafson said Heriberto Estrada, 24, of the 200 block of Spring Street, was cited for DUI, disobeying a traffic control device, no valid driver's license, no proof of insurance and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.

Estrada was taken to Sherman Hospital in very critical condition after the 3 a.m. crash. He was later transferred to the University of Illinois Medical Center in Chicago where Olafson said he is improving.

The home he crashed into was deemed uninhabitable by Elgin's code department and red-tagged Sunday. None of the residents of the home was injured.
