GLENDALE HEIGHTS, Ill. (AP) - Police say one person has been injured and a driver is on the run after a taxi crashed into a home in suburban Chicago.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports (https://bit.ly/11I6Ejk ) police say the driver ran away after the cab went through a wall of the house in Glendale Heights at about 1:10 a.m. Monday.

Bloomingdale Fire Protection District battalion Chief Richard Kurka says a person who was inside the house at the time of the crash got out with minor injuries. He says the person was taken to a hospital for observation.

Kurka says the crash doesn’t seem to have damaged any load-bearing walls in the home. The village’s building department was called to the scene.

Authorities didn’t release details about the taxi or the driver.
