An unusual twist in a multicar crash that shut down a busy street in Burlington Wednesday. Police suspect the man responsible for the crash was driving a stolen car and fled the scene.
Around 5 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to the intersection of Pine Street and Ferguson Avenue. That's where they found a minivan turned on its side and a white sedan badly damaged. Police suspect those two vehicles collided when the driver of a stolen black Infinity turned onto Pine Street without stopping at the intersection.
The stolen car was later found in the driveway of a nearby home. Investigators were not surprised it had been ditched.
"Certainly in a situation like this if the vehicle was reported stolen whoever was operating that vehicle then ditched the vehicle," Burlington Police Lt. Matthew Sullivan said.
Police say they're looking for tips on a white male wearing a black baseball hat who they think was driving the stolen car.
The folks involved in the crash were treated with minor injuries at the scene.
Police confirm that the car was reported stolen Wednesday and that its owner was not involved in the incident.
