Tom captured the incident on Morton Street just past Blue Hill Avenue on his car dashcam late Thursday afternoon.

WBZ reports police are aware of the incident but that nobody came into B-3, which is right across the street, to report anything. If you go to the video and set it to the slowest possible speed, it sure looks like running guy was running because he'd just taken something that didn't belong to him.

Along with that comes the first overpass-removal detours: Traffic heading from the rotary into Jamaica Plan will be diverted onto the temporary road that's been built alongside the Arborway bus depot - which means the gazillion traffic lights the state has installed will blink into use.
