At around 2:00 p.m., two vehicles collided at the intersection of West Main Street and Watertown Avenue. According to authorities, police cruisers were actively pursuing a silver minivan as it approached the crash scene and when it collided with another minivan, a delivery vehicle for Graham’s Florist. The driver of the service minivan sustained a shoulder injury, while the driver of the fleeing minivan also sustained unspecified injuries and was hospitalized under police supervision. The incident resulted in heavy delays across several city intersections. Authorities have yet to provide other details and are currently investigating the case. Updates will be provided as new info is released.
As exemplified in this case, motorists exhibiting reckless or negligent behavior have to be apprehended immediately as they can hurt other people and cause collateral damage. These individuals should be taken off the road and brought to justice. That said, people injured by these reckless individuals may also have the opportunity to pursue legal claims against these culprits. Expert counsel can discuss these possibilities with aggrieved parties.
