One man dead, another injured after vehicle crashes into Roslindale home

One man died and another was injured after a vehicle crashed into a home in Roslindale on Sunday, officials said.

Officials identified the man who was killed as Egidio Dantuony, 60. The injured man, 62, was taken to the hospital but is expected to survive.

A police department spokesman, Sergeant Detective John Boyle, said the crash remains under investigation. No charges had been filed against the driver, Boyle said.

The crash happened around 5 p.m. at 3968 Washington St., a three-family home.

When police arrived, Boston EMS and firefighters were providing medical aid to two people, according to a police report. After the crash, the front porch of the residence was boarded up and the car was towed.


The day after the crash, the house was still, its windows shuttered, front door wrapped in caution tape. Wooden reinforcements held up the damaged porch and the second floor balcony above it.

Beck, 23, who lives a few houses down the street and declined to give her last name, said she came home yesterday to police cars and caution tape blocking off the street, light pole to light pole. Though she wasn’t at home when the accident happened, it still left her distressed.

It’s a pedestrian-heavy neighborhood, Beck said, and she often walks to nearby stores or the Forest Hills station a few blocks down. But Washington Street is busy, she said, and cars can drive fast.

“Cars tend to whip through [the intersection of Washington Street and Archdale Road] as fast as they can,” she said. “Admittedly, I feel more jumpy as a pedestrian.”

Egidio Dantuony’s name was misspelled in an earlier version of this story due to incorrect information provided to the Globe.
