Waterloo police and firefighters responded to a report of a SUV which crashed into a house early Monday morning.

The call came in around 12:30 a.m.

The SUV crashed into a house in the 5500 block of Summerland Drive in Waterloo.

Neighbors tell KWWL they heard a squealing sound and ran out to check and see if a driver had crashed into a ditch off Dysart Rd, which runs behind the house. Instead, they saw the SUV inside the house.

Police say one person inside the house had to be taken to the hospital. The driver of the SUV was also taken to the hospital. Both have minor injuries.

Police have not said what caused the driver to crash into the house.
