A car crashed into a single-family home Thursday night in Arlington Heights and left considerable damage to the building, though no one was home at the time, authorities said.
David Daniels, 26, of Arlington Heights, was cited in the crash for leaving the roadway and for trying to leave the scene of an accident following the 8:25 p.m. accident at Kennicott and Maude avenues, said Sgt. Rich Sperando of the Arlington Heights Police Department.
Daniels was headed southbound on Kennicott when the vehicle left the street went through a fence, and ended up ramming a first-floor bedroom in the 900 block of West Maude, Sperando said.
Daniels was transported to Northwest Community Hospital with injuries described as nonlife threatening, said Battalion Commander Bill Kidd of the Arlington Heights Fire Department.
The collision "did considerable damage," Kidd said.
The crash caused a gas leak, Kidd said, and spurred crews to shut off service in the area.
Police and family members who arrived to the house informed the homeowner about the crash.
Sperando said the accident remains under investigation. He would not say whether alcohol or drugs played a factor in the crash.
