On Monday night, a taxi jumped a curb and smashed into the glass doors of Terminal 3 at O'Hare International Airport in Chicago.

There were no reported injuries during the incident.

According to NBC Chicago, the taxi that crashed into the doors of the airport Monday night at around 5:30 p.m. local time was a Toyota Prius marked with the company name “Dispatch Taxi Affiliation.”

Chicago police told NBC that there were no travelers injured in O'Hare Airport during the crash and the man driving the taxi refused medical treatment at the scene. Authorities say the driver was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.

Craig Wall from Fox 32 shared an image of the incident on Twitter:

O'Hare’s Terminal 3 houses the gates of major airlines, including American Airlines, Virgin America, Japan Airlines, JetBlue, Spirit, Alaska and several others. Thankfully, a Chicago Aviation Department spokesman told NBC that the accident did not cause any delays or cancellations.
