Driver injured when car crashes into Sioux Falls house

SIOUX FALLS (AP) — A driver was seriously injured when he crashed his car into a house in Sioux Falls.

Police say it happened about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday on the city's northeast side. The homeowners say they heard a loud bang and the sound of shattering glass. No one inside the home was injured.

Lt. Jeff Garden says a 21-year-old man who was driving the car was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. No one else was in the car. Police say the driver missed a curve in the road, hit a curb, grazed a tree and flipped over before crashing into the house.

The homeowners say it's not the first time their house has been hit by a vehicle. It also happened in April of 2015.
