Running from the cops, going the wrong way down a one way, and on-street parking. It all led up to a disaster in one part of Troy on Tuesday night.
Troy Police tried to pull over a white BMW SUV for driving with no headlights in the area of 6th Avenue. The officer followed the driver, who then went the wrong way on a one way. As the officer tried to pull the car over, the driver sped off down 5th Avenue, smashing into at least nine cars that were parked along the road. The BMW actually flipped over.
The driver then got out of the car and attempted to run off but he was caught shortly after. He was taken to the hospital, but police haven't released any info about his injuries or his identity yet.
Neighbors in the area told NewsChannel 13 they heard the loud crash and came outside to find a number of vehicles had been hit, one of which was completely totaled. One neighbor said he did not park in his normal spot Tuesday, otherwise, his car would have been badly damaged.
Tow trucks and city workers were on the scene for quite a while moving out cars and cleaning up debris from the crash.
