Authorities are investigating after a woman crashed her Hyundai Santa Fe into a Canton township home Sunday night.

The highway patrol says the woman was traveling at a high rate of speed when she ran off the left side of the roadway and went airborne into the house.

A 17-year-old boy, who was inside the home, was taken to the hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening.

The driver, identified as a 38-year old woman from Mineral City, Ohio, was not hurt.

Authorities say drugs were removed from the vehicle and appear to be a factor in the crash.
