SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — A car accident overnight turned into a puzzling situation for police shortly before 1:30 a.m. Thursday morning. Officers arrived on scene to a reported car crash on the Interstate 91 and 291 interchange. That’s when they say the driver started running on foot away from the crash. Police tell ABC40 that the driver didn’t own the car and did not have permission from the vehicle’s owner.
He was the only person involved in the accident. There were no injuries. He’ll be arraigned in court Thursday morning. He faces charges including driving under the influence, speeding, unauthorized operation of a vehicle and other charges.
