A 74-year-old man was killed Sunday after his car crashed through a garage in Saugus, MAssachusetts, plunging 20 feet off a cliff behind the house.
Interim Police Chief Ronald Gioretti said the accident happened around 1:30 when the car drove through the garage and barreled down a snow-covered embankment behind it.
Saugus firefighters reported a technical rescue team was called in to help remove the victim, identified as Steven Rauseo, 74, from the car. They used a sled to pull him up the embankment to an ambulance.
Police said Rauseo was taken to a nearby hospital and later pronounced dead.
Massachusetts State Police responded to the scene to help Saugus Police with the investigation. It’s unclear if weather played a role in the crash.
