Two people were injured and four residents were displaced after a vehicle crashed into the side of an apartment building in Revere, Massachusetts.
The incident happened at about 12:40 a.m. Wednesday at a building located at the intersection of Route 1A and Beachland Avenue, not far from Revere Beach.
Investigators said the driver of the white Toyota Camry lost control and crashed into a basement unit.

Yussef Alibuda came out moments after the crash found that his car, that was parked alongside the building, was damaged.

“The car was around halfway into the building and there were two people in there,” he said. “They cleared the scene so the firefighters could come in and cut the vehicle open so the driver could be rescued.”

The force of the crash left a gaping hole in that apartment.
Two people inside the vehicle were injured and taken to a local hospital.
“We don’t know if speed was involved. I’m sure police will look into that. There are quite a few accidents. This is not the first time a vehicle has gone into a building here,” Revere Fire Deputy Chief Glen Rich said.
Four residents in two units were displaced.
Gas to the building has been shut off, and inspectional services are expected to assess the damage to the building later Wednesday.
In 2016, a car crashed into the same building and injured a 10-year-old boy who was sleeping inside.
Alibuda said he’s seen other crashes since then.
“In 2018 someone hit this building. In 2019 someone hit the same building,” he said.
Revere Fire Chief Christopher P. Bright said he did not know the exact number of times the building has been hit, but said “there are far too many accidents occurring on this stretch.”
“There is definitely a great need for much more signage, road stripping, guard rails, and speed enforcement on this dangerous road,” he said in a statement.
