A woman was injured early Friday when another car crashed into hers in the Humboldt Park neighborhood, causing her car to spin out and crash into a Little Caesar’s pizza restaurant.

A Toyota was stopped at a red light at the 3300 block of West North Avenue about 2:30 a.m. when a Suzuki collided with it, police said.

The impact of the crash caused the Toyota to spin around and crash into the Little Caesar’s, News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada said.

The 56-year-old driver of the Toyota was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was treated and released, Estrada said.

The 22-year-old driver of the Suzuki, Louis J. Griggs of the 100 block of N. Hamlin, was cited for driving too fast for conditions, Estrada said.
