Case

  On 8/29/19 at approximately 12:20 pm, police were dispatched to the 1600 block of Lincoln Highway East for a vehicle accident with entrapment.  Upon arrival, police located a taxi cab that had flipped over after striking 5 vehicles in the parking lot of the Wells Fargo Bank.  Police spoke with a witness who advised he summoned the cab to take him to an address on Hartman Bridge Rd.  The witness observed the driver (40 year old male from Lancaster) acting strangely.  He stated the driver made a wrong turn, was falling asleep at traffic lights and was weaving all over the road.  The witness stated he yelled at the driver to pull over to allow him to exit the cab due to his behavior.  The cab pulled over and the witness got out.  The driver continued to drive west on Lincoln Highway East and a short distance later (less than ¼ mile) drove over a curb striking 5 parked cars in the Wells Fargo Bank parking lot.  The driver sustained injuries and was transported to a local hospital.  Police suspect the driver was under the influence of a substance and obtained blood samples which are being sent to a laboratory for testing.  Investigation is ongoing.
