Melrose Police Investigating after Car Drives into House

MELROSE — Melrose Police Chief Michael L. Lyle reports that the Melrose Police Department is investigating after a car crashed through the front door of a residence on Wednesday morning.

Melrose Police and Fire responded to 49 East Emerson St. at 11:17 a.m. Wednesday. Upon arrival, rescuers found a Ford sedan more than halfway through the entryway of the house.

The investigation indicates that the driver jumped a curb on East Emerson Street, ran over a street sign, crashed through the front porch/stairway of the home and finally through the door.

The driver, a 25-year-old Revere man, told police that he had been coming from a medical appointment nearby and suffered a medical emergency prior to the crash.

The driver was treated at the scene but declined transportation to a hospital. No one inside the home was hurt.

The home sustained serious damages, but was not rendered structurally unstable.

*Weather Alert* Melrose Roads Extremely Slippery, Drive With Caution Wed, 08 Feb 2017 11:46:10 +0000 Over the last hour or so, the Melrose Police Department has responded to approximately two dozen car crashes throughout the city due to slippery road conditions.

Chief Michael Lyle advises residents to remain off the roads until the trucks dropping sand have done a complete sweep of the city.

Sanders are currently making their way down roads to salt and sand.

Drivers who must be on the roads are reminded to proceed with caution, as the roads are icy and slippery.
