Driver backs into Chelmsford house twice
CHELMSFORD, Mass. (WHDH) -- A driver backed into a Chelmsford home not once, but twice.
The car slammed into the bedroom of a Chelmsford home for adults with disabilities. The incident took down a wall and just narrowly missed a woman inside.
“She was just sitting on her bed the poor thing, just sitting on the bed rocking, that’s all,” said Jana Aldayaa.
Police said a woman who worked at the home hit it twice Wednesday night before turning toward a neighbor’s house and crashing into a tree.
“We heard the tires screeching then all I could see was headlights heading through the woods toward my husband and I,” said Aldayaa.
“I heard an engine rev up loud. Tires screeching and then the sound of a car in motion then another loud bang that was the sound of the car hitting the tree in the woods right across the street from my house,” said Andrew Micu, who helped the driver.
Micu is a Chelmsford firefighter. He ran across the street to help at the scene of the crash. He and his neighbor found a woman with a bloody face behind the wheel. The car was up against the tree.
“I think she was in shock. We ended up getting her towels to be able to control the bleeding,” said Aldayaa.
The woman inside the bedroom was just inches from the wreck, but was unharmed.
Police continue to investigate why the driver backed into the house twice before ending up in the woods.
“She said she was trying to turn her vehicle around. I’ve never seen anyone do it that way before,” said Micu.
Police said the driver has worked at the home for 10 years and has a clean employment record. Police continue to investigate the incident. No charges have been filed.
