SUSSEX, Del. – A man from County Sussex was successfully rescued by emergency personnel after being trapped under the car that crashed through his living room.
The victim, 29-year-old Craig J. Beaver from Millsboro, sustained second and third degree burns on his arm, leg and buttocks.
His father, Craig A. Beaver, said in a telephone interview that his son is recuperating at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical center.
On the night if Thursday, a black BMW crashed into his living room at 1002 Houston Circle where he was lying on his couch while watching television. His neighbor, Martha Renard, said that Beaver was trapped between the car and couch.
The couch was moved by the first people who came in to the scene but was unsuccessful in moving the car. Beaver was initially flown to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury but was later transferred to Johns Hopkins, according to emergency responders.
The hole inside the complex brought about by the crash was covered up but debris still remains inside the living room.
Mable Jenkins describes the incident as devastating. Jenkins provides assistance with daily tasks in the apartment since Beaver suffers a spinal defect. As soon as she heard about the incident, she went immediately to the scene. Jenkins hopes and prays for a full recovery since she already considers him as her own.
The female driver of the BMW sustained minor injuries. Investigation about the cause of the crash still continues.
The unidentified driver remains uncharged as of Friday.
One other man lives inside the home but was uninjured in the crash and will be staying at another place.
It is expected that Beaver will remain in the hospital for several weeks.
