CROSSVILLE, Ill. (WFIE) - Authorities are investigating after they say a car drove through a fence and hit a house in White County earlier this week.

According to Illinois State Police, the crash happened on the 200 block of South Cross Street around 12:10 a.m. Thursday.

State troopers say a car was traveling northbound when a driver failed to negotiate the curve, which resulted in the vehicle driving off the roadway.

Officials say the house was empty at the time of the crash.

State police identified the driver as 38-year-old Angel Wyatt of Fairfield. She was arrested for driving under the influence, and was cited for improper lane usage and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.

Authorities say Wyatt was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. No one else was hurt.
