Update 4:48 p.m.: Evanston police say five teenagers were riding in a stolen car about 4:45 this afternoon when the car went out of control and struck a house on the southeast corner of Dobson Street and Barton Avenue in Evanston.
Police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan says four of the teens in the red Honda Civic were taken to St. Francis Hospital to be checked for possible injuries because their parents couldn’t immediately be located, but it appears they weren’t hurt.
Witnesses say the car went out of control as it went around the corner at the intersection.
Dugan says there appears to have been no structural damage to the house and nobody inside the house was hurt. The car, he says, had been stolen in Evanston last night.
It’s the second incident this week in which a car hit a house in Evanston. The earlier incident happened Thursday evening on Emerson Street at Laurel Avenue.
