Police reported SUV driven by alleged robbers crashed into two vehicles while attempting to escape from a robbery scene.
Boston police reported that three armed robbers committed the crime in the Corner Mall in Downtown Crossing, along Tremont Street. A BPD spokesperson stated that a call came in from a witness who was at the scene of the robbery. When police arrived, the witness reported that the robbers fled out of the mall after they noticed that the police were approaching.
The police began pursuit after spotting the robbers’ black Toyota SUV fleeing the store. While approaching Chinatown the black SUV sideswiped a minivan and then crashed into an oncoming car.
According to the police report the driver and two passengers of the car sustained injuries. At this time authorities have not released the details of the injuries. They may have had wounds to the neck, back, arm, hip and/or leg. The driver of the minivan was not injured. The alleged robbers in the SUV sustained life-threatening injuries.
Upon arrival emergency responders immediately transported all of the victims, including the alleged robbers, of the accident to a nearby hospital.
Dr. Brian Elias, from The Accident and Injury Team, commented on the crash. “This was a serious accident that resulted in four people sustaining grave injuries. We are sorry to see this happen here in Boston. Whenever people try to evade the police it can lead to dangerous repercussions. We recommend that all of the parties involved seek medical attention and do not wait for symptoms to appear. Neck, back and hip injuries are not always obvious and should be taken very serious after any accident. We hope that all of the injured people involved in this crash have a speedy recovery.”
