At 11:45 p.m. last night, reports of a hit and run involving a motorcycle and a car left a female victim in critical condition and a male victim with serious but non life-threatening injuries. The car involved in the collision fled the scene of the crash. First responders determined the site of the crash at Harvard Street and Franklin Hill Avenue, near Harambee Park in Central Dorchester.
District B-3 Detectives, BPD Officers, Boston paramedics and EMTs, Homicide Unit, FCIT (fatal collision investigation team), and the crime scene response unit were all requested to the scene after multiple 911 calls. The sheer intensity of the collision drew a large crowd, so additional police units came to control the growing number of spectators.
First responders identified the injured as the male driver and female passenger of the motorcycle. A 911 caller reported the female bleeding heavily from the head and vomiting blood, and it is unknown if the victims were wearing helmets. Both of the injured were transported by EMS to Boston Medical Center, and no further information on the their condition is available at this time.
Police are actively searching for the individual operating the car that fled the scene. No arrests have been made at this time, however sources tell us charges are expected once the operator is found.
