21-year-old driver crashes into Malden home
MALDEN, Mass. -- A car crashed into a Malden home around 9:00 p.m. Friday, causing serious damage.
The driver, 21, had been operating the vehicle without a license, according to Malden police, when he drove into Ginny Mulkerin’s house on Bellvale Street.
While the two passengers inside his car suffered only from minor injuries, Mulkerin said she’s thankful to be alive.
She and her husband usually stay-in and cook dinner. However, that night she was craving a Whopper. So, the two made a trip to the Burger King. Mulkerin said they were gone for maybe ten minutes. During that brief time, the accident occurred.
“All of a sudden, engines were there. And as I got out of the car, all I could see was a hole,” Mulkerin said. “This is a miracle. I’m serious,” she said.
Mike Feely, a neighbor of the Mulkerin’s, said he heard a “bang” after the car hit a steel pole.
“Boom. Walking out -- nothing looked out of the ordinary until I saw the hole in the house," Feely said. "Then I looked in this hole and there was a car in the guy’s living room.”
The driver was cited for operating without a license and failure to stay in the designated lane.
