An allegedly stolen SUV fleeing the police crashed head-on into a CDTA bus shelter and seriously injured a person in the bus shelter. Jonathan Carpenter, who sustained broken legs, arms, internal injuries, and severe head injuries in the car crash, was transported to a local hospital.
Robert A. Holcomb, 47, appeared in stocking feet and hospital garb to be arraigned on several charges including first-degree vehicular assault, two counts of criminal mischief, criminal possession of stolen property, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, running a stop sign, DWI, and failure to signal a turn.
A city court judge said that Carpenter has two previous felony convictions and has an outstanding arrest warrant in Massachusetts.
