An early Christmas gift
Driver flung 50 feet off overpass in Revere crash, survives
James Fay got 'Christmas present early,' trooper says
REVERE, Mass. —A driver is lucky to be alive Thursday after falling 50 feet when he was ejected from his SUV in a crash in Revere.
James Fay was driving home for lunch when his SUV crashed at Copeland Circle, which is Route 1 North, in Revere.
According to police, as Fay's SUV rolled over he was thrown out of the sunroof and fell approximately 50 feet from the overpass, landing in the snow below.
"He was conscious, alert, he was talking. And the State Police on scene told us that he had been walking around prior to that," said Lt. William Brown, a Revere EMT.
"That's definitely a miracle. You might even call it a Christmas miracle," said Fay's friend, Will Teleau.
