A woman is dead after she crashed her car into a building in Medford, Massachusetts, on Friday morning.
According to the Medford Fire Department a call came in around 6:20 a.m. for a car into a building at Wellington Circle Plaza.
The car was inside a Lens Crafters located at 4110 Mystic Valley Parkway.
The driver, identified later on Friday as 62-year-old Cleuza Dasilva of Everett, was pronounced dead at the scene.
“It’s kind of heartbreaking to see something like this,” said Joseph Sasso who works nearby. “It gives me goosebumps.”
Massachusetts State Police say the woman was driving westbound on Route 16 when she lost control of the car, travelled over the curb, and crashed into the building.
Medford Fire Deputy Chief Scott Graham said the car was, “heavily damaged to the point you almost couldn’t tell what make it was.”
One witness flagged down a state trooper for help while first responders from the State Police barracks across the street rushed to the scene.
The driver was the vehicle's only occupant.
Crews are continuing to investigate the cause of the crash. Lens Crafters employees say they were shocked nobody else was hurt.
