PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – A 21-year-old man is in critical condition after crashing his car into a home on Murray Street in Providence’s Silver Lake neighborhood early Saturday morning.
Police say a family was inside the home at the time of the crash, but they all appeared to be okay.
Providence Police Lt. George Smith tells Eyewitness News it appears the 21-year-old driver was speeding down Murray Street before he lost control, colliding with a fence and house before going airborne and striking an unoccupied minivan parked next to the home. The car came to a rest on its roof, and emergency crews had to free the driver from the vehicle.
The victim was taken to Rhode Island Hospital.
Police are continuing to investigate the cause of the crash.
