Worcester liquor store ransacked after two-car crash

Several people ransacked a Worcester liquor store moments after a two-car crash sent a vehicle hurtling into the establishment early Friday, police said.

A Toyota Avalon driven by a 21-year-old Brockton woman was turning onto Main Street from Madison Street when it collided with a Volkswagen driving north on Main Street, Worcester police said in a statement.

Police believe multiple people entered Kirsch Liquors shortly after the crash and stole items, police said. Police would not comment on whether the break-in was related to the crash.

There were four passengers in the Toyota. One was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening. No other injuries were reported in the crash, police said.

The Volkswagen was driven by a 21-year-old man from Putnam, Conn. There were no passengers in his car. Police say they are still investigating the incident.
