FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Police impounded a vehicle after blood was found on it.
On Tuesday July 26, Framingham Police were called to 3 Warren Road at 10:05 a.m. for a “damaged vehicle blocking the left lane,” according to the police report.
The police officer noted the vehicle had “front end had sustained major damage from an unknown cause” and the officer “viewed blood on the driver side quarter panel” according to the police report.
According to the police report, the owner of the vehicle told police “he hit a deer on Route 495” and that the “car stopped working as it was overheated due to a cracked radiator.”
Police asked the owner of the vehicle for his license and he told the officer “I wasn’t driving my friend was.”
When police ran the driver’s license for the owner, the status was “suspended.”
“Given that there was blood on the vehicle” and the man refused to tell police who was driving and where the alleged deer was he hit except to say “495” Framingham Police called the State Police to see if they had a report of a deer struck.
The man then took out his cell phone and walked roughly 200 yards away from the Framingham Police officer and came back to officers and said “he did not have to answer any of our questions,” noted the police report.
Police towed the vehicle as it was blocking a public way and logged the vehicle as evidence for processing “to determine if the blood was animal blood” according to the police report.
The police report noted “given that there are multiple entries on his record for leaving the scene (of a crash), OUTI(operating while under the influence of alcohol), and operating to endanger,I have reason to believe the vehicle may have been involved in something other than what (he) was stating.”
The police report redacted the name of the possible driver and owner of the vehicle.
