BROOKLINE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Updated at 7:00 p.m.
Monday evening the Massachusetts State Police have located a vehicle on I-93 northbound that matches the description of a car involved in three separate hit-and-runs within a one hour timeframe earlier that morning.
The Brookline Police Department had asked for the public's assistance in locating the 2007 gray four-door Volkswagen Jetta that allegedly collided with multiple cars and one person.
According to police statement released on Monday, the vehicle and driver at-large was involved in an incident on Memorial Drive in Cambridge, one involving a pedestrian on Pleasant Street in Brookline, and another hit-and-run on Harvard Street in Brookline.
The BPD said all incidents happened between 9 and 10 a.m. on Monday, and uploaded an image of the suspect's vehicle on Facebook. The license plate of the Jetta was 1HEG19, and registered to a woman of Fenwood Road in Boston. Police said that they went to the suspect's address, but did not find any sign of the car there.
Brookline Police Deputy Superintendent Jennifer Paster told WBZ NewsRadio that the first victim in Cambridge attempted to follow the vehicle that hit them before police instructed them not to pursue the suspect and pull over.
Afterward, a pedestrian in his sixties was struck and suffered minor injuries on Pleasant Street, Paster said. Following that, the vehicle was stopped at a red light on Harvard Street, and when the light turned green, a car behind the suspect's vehicle honked their horn, officials said.
Paster said the female suspect then put her vehicle in reverse and hit the honking car.
Police asked that anyone with information related to the incidents call Officer Brian Keaveney at 617-730-2739.
