A car plowed into a house shortly before 6:30 p.m. Tuesday on West Boulevard near Belleville.
The St. Clair County Sheriff's Department and the East Side Fire Protection District responded to the scene, which drew a small crowd of onlookers.
Deborah Texier, who lives on Mill Springs Road, said she was watching television when she heard the crash.
"It was a loud 'POW' like an explosion," she said.
It's unclear if anyone was injured in the crash. A MedStar ambulance left the scene unoccupied.
The house sustained some structural damage as a result of the accident.
