LYNN — A 28-year-old Lynn man was allegedly speeding when he veered into the opposite lane on Robinson Street and crashed into two parked cars, causing his Jeep to roll over on Friday night. Police say he was involved in another crash on Walnut Street just minutes before, where he struck a fence and left the scene.
The man was taken to Salem Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and is facing charges for leaving the scene of property damage, reckless operation, operating uninsured, operating with a revoked registration, and operating left of center. He was cited and will be summoned to Lynn District Court, but police declined to release his name.
Lynn Police, Lynn Fire and Atlantic Ambulance crews responded to the area of 114 Robinson St. around 11 p.m. after a vehicle rollover was reported, Lynn Police Lt. Dave Brown said.
Police determined the man was allegedly speeding in a Jeep Grand Cherokee when he crossed over to the opposite of the street, and struck two parked cars, pushing one of the parked vehicles about 40 feet, which caused his vehicle to roll over, Brown said.
Police also determined he had been involved in another crash on Walnut Street, which occurred only minutes before the crash on Robinson Street. In the first crash, he struck a fence and allegedly left the scene, leaving the Jeep’s front bumper behind, Brown said.
