Ben Agrawal, who took the photo, supplies this report on an incident in the North End shortly before 10 p.m.:
The guy smashed into several cars on Richmond Street and attempted to cross Hanover and drive off towards Salem. Made it to the corner of Parmenter and Salem. Front axle was broken and he couldn't get any further. The guy then tried to get away on foot, running back towards Hanover and the scene of the original accident (idiot) and was tackled by a group and held until BPD officers arrived. Caused a large panic when he initially hit the first car with a loud bang and tried to barrel across Hanover (terrorism fears I'm sure)
He reports that, amazingly, there were no injuries, although one woman was very upset - she may have narrowly missed being crushed between two of the cars.
