MEDFORD, MASS. (WHDH) – A car burst into flames after it slammed into a tree and careened into a home in Medford early Friday morning, officials said.

Emergency crews responding to a report of a crash in the area of Lawrence Road found neighborhood residents pulling a motorist from a wrecked vehicle that was fully engulfed in flames, according to Medford Firefighters Local 1032.

“The vehicle in question seems to have struck a tree before ripping in half and striking the house,” fire officials said in a news release.

The driver was taken to an area hospital. There was no immediate word on their condition.

People inside the home that was struck by the vehicle were not injured.

The engine of the vehicle landed in a bush and other car parts were left strewn across multiple properties.

“This nightmare scenario could have gone significantly worse if not for the courageous actions of the bystanders and quick work of the responding companies,” fire officials added.

The crash remains under investigation.
