DANVERS (CBS) – A Peabody man is facing charges after his Jeep crashed into a condo on Garden Street in Danvers on Wednesday afternoon.
“Heard a loud crash,” said John Jodoin, neighbor. “Noticed there was smoke and dust rolling from the front of the entrance over there.”
The driver of the Jeep went through the front door, where a resident was working at his computer.
“It miss me by, like, three, feet,” said resident Jimmy Zou. “It sounded like everything just crashing right behind me.”
Zou reached into the Jeep to turn it off and then went to his Jodoin for help.
Jodoin is a former police officer. He checked on the driver, who he said, “was incoherent and a little violent, struggling.”
The operator of the vehicle, a 39-year-old man from Peabody, was taken to Beverley Hospital to be checked out. He will be charged with negligent operation of a motor vehicle and the registry was notified to suspend or revoke his license. Police said the driver may have had a medical condition.
Zou has to wait for repairs before he can live at his home.
