A 16-year-old boy crashed a sport-utility vehicle into a Fairfax County home while he was on his way to football practice Monday morning, officials said.

The crash happened shortly after 6 a.m. in the 10400 block of Miller Road in the Oakton area. The teenager ran the SUV off the road and struck a mailbox and a sign before hitting the home, Fairfax County police spokeswoman Lucy Caldwell said.

The driver was taken to a hospital. He was not seriously injured due to the wreck, but police are investigating whether he had been experiencing a medical emergency.

The SUV damaged the porch and the front of the home, Caldwell said.
