Van Crashes into North Toledo House

NORTH TOLEDO -- One person is in the hospital after a van crashed into a house overnight.  The incident happened shortly after midnight on Wednesdya in the 500th block of East Central, near Chestnut in north Toledo.

Police still aren't sure what made the driver of the van lose control.  It first went off the road, hit a tree, flipped over, then slid into the porch of a house.

A passenger was trapped inside the van until rescue crews could cut her out.  She suffered a serious leg injury and was taken to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center for treatment.  The driver and another passenger were not hurt.

Nobody was home at the time of the crash.  The house was badly damaged.
