A Fox River Grove man received only minor injuries after his vehicle struck a building in Crystal Lake Monday afternoon, authorities said.

Emergency crews from Crystal Lake Fire Rescue and Crystal Lake Police Department responded at 12:46 p.m. to the scene of the crash near Crystal Lake Plaza, 6500 Northwest Hwy., near Route 14 and Virginia Road.

A 2007 Honda Civic had been traveling west on Route 14 when the vehicle left the road, traversed the parkway and a section of the parking lot, then struck the southeast corner of the building, authorities said.

No businesses were affected, as that portion of the building was vacant.

The structure was inspected by the Crystal Lake Building Department and deemed safe to occupy, authorities said.

The 25-year-old driver was taken to Centegra Memorial Hospital in Woodstock for evaluation and treatment of injuries not considered to be life-threatening. Police are still investigating the crash.
