TOPEKA, Kansas (WIBW) -- A Topeka man was sent to the hospital after driving into a house Saturday evening.

Shawnee County Dispatch got the call around 6:30 p.m., that a black car struck a house at 823 SW MacVicar.

According to officials on the scene, the man driving was heading west on Hazelton Court when he veered off the road into a resident's backyard, missed a pool, and came out on the other side of the fence, crossed MacVicar and crashed into the house.

He was transported to Stormont-Vail Hospital and suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Police are still investigating why the car drove off the road. They said they think the issue might be medical.

Alcohol was not a factor.
