Thursday, July 25, 2013

Police say it was like a bumper car alley after a man struck several cars on a street in North Philadelphia late Wednesday night.

The incident happened around 10:30 p.m. along Glenwood Avenue near 5th Street.

Authorities say a male driver had been stopped by police on bike patrol when he suddenly took off down the street, striking seven parked cars before slamming into a truck.

There were no injuries reported and it is unclear on why the police stopped the man.

The man was taken into custody and is being questioned by police.
