HYANNISPORT - You could call it a Christmas miracle. The driver of this Mercury Grand Marquis apparently lost control sending the vehicle crashing into a home at 12 Smith Street in Hyannisport around 10 AM Christmas morning. Our reporter tells us just moments earlier children were on this bed and had just moved off of it before the crash. Luckily no one was injured but as you can see the house did suffer extensive damage. Barnstable Police cited the driver 26-year old Myria Matsushita of Hyannis for operating to endanger, operating without a license, stop sign violation and marked lanes violation.
