A tremendous car crash early Saturday morning involving a driver whose vehicle went airborne and hit a Revere building is under investigation.
The crash happened at approximately 2:15 a.m. on the southbound side of North Shore Road, near the intersection of Revere Street.
The vehicle hit a curb and went airborne, resulting in damage to a building and three parked cars. All four vehicles were towed from the site of the crash.
The owner of a business located near the scene of the crash, told WBZ-TV News, “I’m shocked. He almost went up to the second floor of that building, so I’m really shocked.”
A surveillance camera captured video of the incident, showing the vehicle knocking down two cement barriers, going airborne, and crashing in to an apartment building.
A resident of the apartment building said in an interview with WBZ-TV News that the vehicle was likely traveling 80 miles per hour.
“I’m uncomfortable and I don’t feel safe here,” the resident said. “I’ve been here since 2012 and I can’t tell you how many accidents have happened. It’s really wicked bad. I don’t feel safe.”
