If O'Hare International Airport has a 2016 motto, it's "Damn, we can't catch a break!" Just as the airport's nightmarish security lines began clearing up... a taxi crashed through a glass door on the airport's lower level.

Here's a photo of the scene:

The crash happened at 5:33 p.m. on Memorial Day, police said, when a car jumped the curb and crashed into Door D of Terminal 3's lower level—home to American Airlines' baggage claim, according to a spokesperson for the Chicago Department of Aviation.

No one was injured in the crash, and the driver of the vehicle was issued a citation for "failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident," police said.
