A 25-year-old Revere man is expected to be OK after his car veered off the road and crashed through the front door of a home in Melrose, Massachusetts on Wednesday morning.
Melrose police said the driver of a gray Ford sedan told them he was coming from the nearby Melrose-Wakefield Hospital around 11:15 a.m. after giving blood when he passed out behind the wheel.
After he passed out, the car jumped a curb on East Emerson Street, ran over a street sign and then went up onto the lawn at 49 East Emerson St., which became a makeshift ramp launching the car about 12 feet into the home, where it came to rest in the foyer.
Despite the serious damage it sustained, officials determined the house was still structurally sound.
Paul Mastronardi, the owner of the home, said there were lots of antiques in the house, which he has shared with his wife for 15 years, but no one was hurt and nothing too important was lost.
"What are you going to do? Everything is all right," Mastronardi said.
The driver's name has not been released by police. He was treated at the scene but declined transport to a hospital.
"He woke up, opened the door, and walked away," Mastronardi said.
It's unclear if the driver will face any charges.
