The motive force of the Hyundai, a 32-year-old metropolis lady, reported the crash to police, Duff stated. She had parked her automobile, which had a closely broken windshield, close to Gregory and Canal streets, then went to the Yale police headquarters on Ashmun Road, he stated.
“The motorist complained of a head harm and glass in her eyes. An ambulance transported the lady to the hospital the place she has since been launched,” Duff stated. “As a part of the investigation and for added inspection, officers impounded the Honda CR85r grime bike and the Hyundai Azera.”
