A car crashed into a house on Madison's Far West Side Friday morning, but nobody was seriously hurt.

The crash happened at about 10 a.m. in the 8300 block of Blackwolf Drive, the Madison Fire Department said.

Arriving firefighters found the car lodged between a tree and the house, with significant damage reported to the house.

"Paramedics walked the driver, the sole occupant of the vehicle, to the ambulance for a medical assessment," said Fire Department spokeswoman Cynthia Schuster. "The driver refused additional care and did not want to be taken to the hospital."

The house was assessed for structural stability and was deemed safe with no emergency shoring needed. No utility lines were affected.

Schuster did not know whether the driver was cited by police.
