REVERE, MA (WHDH) - A young boy managed to walk away unharmed after a car crashed into his bedroom early Wednesday morning.
The car crashed into 10-year-old Amine Mezghab’s bedroom in an apartment on North Shore Road at around 1:30 a.m. Amine said he was asleep in his bunk bed when the car hit him, pinning him underneath. Amine said he was lodged under the car and he could feel its gas leaking on him.
Amine’s father Farid Mezghab had just gotten home from work as a cab driver and was on his knees praying in the living room when he said he heard what sounded like a bomb. The impact from the car cashing into Amine’s bedroom knocked a lamp onto his father, leaving him with bruises on his head and leg.
Mezghab ran into Amine’s room and was able to free his son from underneath the car. Amine was not injured and said his father is his hero for saving him.
“I know he’s always there for me,” said Amine. “The second he heard the rumble, one rumble against the wall, he would charge in before anything and pull me out.”
The driver of the car was taken to the hospital. Police said the crash is under investigation and no charges have been filed yet.
Mezghab said crashes are common on this stretch on North Shore Road and said three have happened in recent weeks.
